SOURCE: windshield wipers wont work
Can you here the motor running? If not maybe a fuse is blown or the wiper motor is bad.
Can you move the wipers by hand? If you can then the linkage either popped off or is broken.

What an idot. It is above the fuse box on the pass. side. Which is gotten to by removing the fuse box panel. Two hex heads and a metal clamp washer inside the fuse box door. The steel 20amp fuse lowest to the floor is the one.

Did you plug them all back in? lol j/p
Do your blinkers and your back windshield wipers work? It's either electrical or mechanical. Turn them on and poke around to see if you hear the motor doing anything. If you hear it, it's probably a broken linkage. If not, start with the fuses and work from there.
It's possible that by unplugging the battery and then plugging it back it, the fuse for the wipers received an electrical surge, blowing it. Consult your manual to see where the fuse for your model is and check to see if it's blown.

if the fuse failed then that means one of few things...
1.) motor has failed causing excessive current draw
2.) circuit has direct short to ground
3.) short to ground that caused fuse failure is now an open
you need to check for power and ground at the wiper motor
keep us posted
