There is a timer relay that governs the cycle of the wiper or the switch itself. If the dial switch is on a stalk, it probably has to be replaced. They are notorious for malfunctions.(especially if it is a gm car). Do not use a needle or pin to open up a spray nozzle , you will ruin the spay pattern. Besides you said nothing about the washer being broke. It's the wiper cycle right?

Try spraying some cleaner spray on the switch itself might spilled something on control, or take a pin like sewing needle pike it in the hole were UR washer fluid comes out

It is likely the wiper motor is defective due to a failed park circuit switch inside the wiper motor drive.

Toyota Camry intermittent windscreen wipers stopped working. Then all of the windscreen wipers stopped working. The fuse is OK. Model SXV10R. January 1996


this could be caused by a bad whiper motor or a bad whiper motor switch. check for voltage at the whiper motor itself, if you do have voltage at the motor then the motor is bad.

Wiper Blades not working properly


First you must diagnose why windscreen wipers going slow and/or stopping.
In order to find out the cause of wipers stopping you can try follows: 1. Carefully extract the wiper arms from their axles (two pieces). In some cases you need to use an extracting tool. Heed of the windscreen !!! 2. Disassemble the plastic covers from the bottom of the windscreen. 3. With the bonnet up you can start the engine, (transmission in "N" or "P" position and parking brake on). Now you must switch on the control lever of the wipers, and go to the engine compartment. If the wiper motor runs let the wiper motor running for a few minutes and switch off. Go to the step 4. If the wiper motor do not runs you must check first the electrical feeding of the motor. It is necessary to unscrew three bolts of the mechanism and disconnect the electrical coupling (difficult assurance). If the electrical feeding is OK you must replace the motor - steps 5, 6, 7. If not you must check electrical connections, the control switch of wipers and electric cables. 4. Now you must check the two bearings of wiper mechanism with your hand. In the most cases the left bearing is out of order (is very hot). This is the most encounter fault of the wipers running at Audi. 5. For have enough space to manipulation the wiper motor together with their mechanism you must extract the plastic cover of the engine computer box, and extract also the box screws. Then you can move slowly the engine computer box, just for a few milimeters. 6. You must disconnect the electrical coupling of the motor (difficult assurance), unscrew three bolts of the mechanism and extract together with the motor. You must move them slowly between windscreen and engine computer box until the wiper motor go out together with the mechanism. This is the most difficult operation! 7. Now you can repair the bearings, replace entire wiper mechanism or replace the wiper motor. It is not very simply, but it works.
Heed of the windscreen !!!
Refit all in reverse order.

Please rate my response. Thanks!
