The relay was optional. If you have one, it's on the right pillar above the passenger's feet. See picture below.

2001 Camry wiper don't work

If the fuses and/or relays are OK.

Could be a bad switch.
Could be a bad motor.
Could be a loose wire connection at either the switch or the motor.
Could be a shorted or broken wire somewhere between the switch and the motor.

Wiper wiring diagram

Those are accessory functions working off the ignition switch when in accessory position or run position of the key. Were you to check if the wiper and radio fuse had power to them in the run or accessory position as they should, likely they would not. Power from the switch goes to the fuse panel, powering the fuses and circuits that only work with key in on or acc., either a direct wire to the fuse panel or sometimes, fuses get power from an accessory relay that sends power to fuses, but relay has to get a signal from a good working switch before it powers the fuses.
What I'm trying to say, is the bad switch is probably the reason you have no wipers, radio, or mirrors.

I changed the relay fuse to my windshield wipers and the knob and my wipers still wont work on my 98 plymoth grand voyager what should i check

Turn wipers on (veh in "on" or "acc" position)
Disconnect the electrical connection at the windshield wiper motor (located in the engine compartment on the fire wall) and check for voltage. If you have voltage, there is a good possibility your windshield wiper motor is bad.
You may also: Disconnect the electrical connection at the windshield motor and run a heavy gauge wire directly from the positive side of the battery to the motor. If you get the windshield motor to come on. There may be only a wiring (short) problem between the relay and the motor.

Just bought 2004 passat and winshield wipers dont work

If both wipers are not working, then first of all check your fuses, if fuses are good follow wiper motor wires or look in owner's manual to find the wiper relay. Test relay with ohmmeter to see if it is good or just replace it.
Double check all wiring.
Last possible cause would be the a bad wiper switch which you can also test with an ohmmeter

Windshield wipers

I've seen this problem before.
First check the fuse.
Second check to make sure the motor has a good ground. Easy way to do this is to take a wire and run it from the (-) negative side of the battery to a metal part of the wiper motor, be sure it is to bare metal as current will not flow through paint.
Third if the wipers still don't work, a voltage check is needed at the electrical connectors on the motor. This can be done with a voltage meter. Try every speed on the switch. If different readings are noticed at different speed settings then it's the motor.
Fourth if you notice no differences then it is probably the switch unless there are corroded or broken wires somewhere in the circuit.
Good luck and keep me posted
