There was probably melted snow around the wiper arm bottoms and there was just enough heat from the engine compartment to keep it melted, when you stopped for gas the heat went away and it froze solid. get the car good and warmed up and lay a thick towel or blanket over the wipers and the cowl area and let it sit for awhile and build up some heat in there and see if they start working again. also turn heat on defrost so you are heating it from both sides.

Wiper not working


Sounds like you damaged the gear drive that operates the wiper arms, time for new wiper motor assembly is my guess. Don't use the wipers to brush off snow, very bad idea, the drive gears are plastic and on this old dog very brittle from age.

What would cause wipers to just stop working?


You'd have to grab the volt meter but you may have burned wiper motor out. The motor isn't made to clear snow from the windshield in any great amount so the harder it has to work to move the more chance you'll have of burning it out. Did you check the fuses under the hood of the car as well as inside the car??

First, scrape the ice and snow off the windshield and make sure that the wipers are not frozen onto the glass. Never use the wipers until you have cleaned off the windshield.

Windshield wipers stopped working with heavy snow cover


The windshield wiper circuit has an circuit breaker in it, under heavy load this breaker trips to protect the wiper motor, when the motor cools, the breaker resets automatically restoring proper wiper action.

Assuming that you did bump each wiper to make sure it wasn't frozen to the window (sorry, even the obvious has to be stated just in case), it's possible the wiper motor has failed. Occassionally they will fail without even so much as a warning. I've had it happen. But just in case, check your fuses.

My windshield wipers stopped working after a big snow storm. (1997 Jeep Cherokee)


You should check your fuses first. What may of happened is that the wiper motor could be frozen if the wiper arms are frozen in ice. Another thing that may of happened is that the wipers were used to clear the windshield instead of clearing it manually. When that is done if there is too much snow or it is a heavy snow the wiper motor will burn up or go bad due to the fact that it does not have enough power to do such things.

While the wipers are in the parked state, just loosen off (or remove) the wiper arm from the drive spigot and re-position the driverside wiper arm to the correct position.
Re-tighten arm drive mount and all should be well.

Front wipers stopped working but you can hear the motor run also


If the wipers were buried under snow/ice or frozen to the windshield, you may have blown the red 10 amp fuse located in cavity 9 in the fuse block located on the bottom left side of the instrument panel near the parking brake pedal.
In order of easiest to check:
1) ensure wipers not frozen to windshield.
2) ensure wiper arms are not loose on the pivot stud,
3) check the red 10 amp fuse.
You stated that "you can hear the motor". Which motor do you hear? The engine or the wiper motor?
If you hear the wiper motor, then the fuse is alright. Try 1) and 2) above.
