All these systems are controlled by the GEM, that is the Generic Electronic Module, have Kragen run a quick test and see if the system has codes, but most likely the Module is defective, it is located on top of the fuse panel to the left of the steering column. I have 30 years as a Ford tech so I am pretty darn sure of this diagnose.

SOURCE: wipers

You have two problems. The first is the wipers turn off and stay in the upright position and do not close. The motor is fine. There is a steal 'close' tab that has been bent out of position. You just need to push the steal tab back into position. You can use a chisel or screwdriver to pound it back into the 90 degree position.

The windsheild washer motor probably needs to be replaced

Windsheild wipers wont shut off


The clutch in the wiper motor is bad or you burned up the circuit inside otherwise the transmitter to the wipers are no good you are supposed to allow the car to warm up while the defrost is on and after the car warms up and the windschield starts to melt the snow or ice then use the wipers (the wipers aren't built to push weight or scrape ice only to clean the water from the glass surface)

Windsheild wiper wont move


Check to see if the nut is tight on the wiper down at the bottom, secondly turn the wipers on and put your ear down by the wipers to see if you can hear the motor moving. If you hear the motor moving the arms under the plastic sheathing have seperated. Try the nut first see if that fixes your problem then try the rest.
