Check the fuses. Because of frozen locks, the motors could not operate, thus overloading the circuit and blowing the fuse.
Hope this helps

If the switch itself feels just the same as it always has then the most likely fault is that the rear wiper motor located behind the panel in the tailgate has suffered a failure of the self-parking mechanism: it's what ensures that after you turn the wiper off, the motor keeps running until the wiper is back in the parked position.
There are two major parts to the way it works: a self parking switch which works off a cam located in the wiper motor, and a back-emf brake which overcomes the inertia of the mechanism.
The simplest fix will be to just replace the motor assembly. You can get one from a scrapyard, but won't know whether it's about to fail for the same wear-related reasons. Alternatively fit a new or remanufactured unit. You'll also find that a good automotive electrician can usually fix the original motor, but as it's nearly ten years old there may be other wear-related issues waiting to bite you on the bottom so I'd personally go for a remanufactured unit from a trustworthy supplier. Such units normally come with a minimum one year warranty. Anything with just a 30 or 90 day warranty has likely just been taken from a scrapped vehicle, cleaned and given a shiny coat of paint...

Testimonial: "Thanks for the info-Appararently quite a common occurence & particularly annoying on a long drive"
Crank/cam misaligned timing can be due to a slack timing belt jumping a tooth on a cog. Check that the belt is tight and that the timing marks on belt align with the cam and crank pulley timing marks.
