3. Wiper Motor.

First you have to check if the motor has power. get a tester and test for power on the motor. if you are not getting power check a fuse, is you are getting power but the motor is not working then you may have to change it.

This sound like some type of relay switch failure in the fuse box, you need check all the fuses and see if they're all intact and make sure none of them are burned out. If all these are not working you have a live wire some where in you wire harness

Removal & Installation
Always rotate the wiper operating arm in a clockwise motion or damage to the motor could occur.
Here is the picture of the motor....it is the round object in the middle of the picture that looks like a can and has a square block on the end of it.
You have to remove the cowl vent panel....just under the windshield. $64.00 for a new motor.

Testimonial: "Fast and accurate response."
there are two relays for the wiper run park relay and high / low relay they are located in the battery junction box under the hood and they are on the left side middle above the rows of fuses.
let me know if you have any more question.

check to see if you have corrosion in the fuse box or the GEM module, by removing the fuse box completely, disconnect the battery, take out the two screws and two 8mm bolts that hold the fuse box in, it will take some maneuvering to get it positioned right to disconnect the two wiring harnesses from the fuse box, they are bolted through the middle. Once removed, take the GEM module off the back of the fuse box and look for what would be something like the same corrosion you would see on your battery posts, usually one of these components is corroded and causing the problem, my buddy got a replacement fuse box for his from a wrecking yard for only 15 dollars, with all the fuses and relays. If you have this corrosion, then you probably have a windshield leak at the lower left hand corner of the windshield, it lets water drip onto the fuse box and GEM module. Hope this helps, let me know
