Testimonial: "thank you thats kinda what i figured i just wanted someone elses opinion thank you =)"
If your washer motor works there is power in the circuit and ground.
The wiper motor housing needs to be grounded.
If neither one works check for power on the green wire leading into the motor. If nothing there your switch may be bad.
If there is power to the green wire then check for power on the gray wire on low wiper speed and power on purple on high speed.
Here is a diagram if you need it.
Hope this gets your wipers going again.

SOUND LIKE A BAD WIPER RELAY.CHECK IN YOUR OWNERS CAR MANUAL IN GLOVE COMPARTMENT IT HAS FUSES AND RELAY LOCATIONS AND THE CIRCUIT EACH CONTROLS.

You must find out if the problem is in the motor of the wipers or the command and wiring to it: with the engine shut down engage the wipers at full speed; take a voltmeter, access the wiring to the motor and take it out and check the voltages between every single wire in there and the body of the car - if none of them has at least 12 volts then the wiring/ command is at fault, if there is 12 volts there the motor has failed.
If it's in the wiring the next step is to check the command: take out the steering shrouds and identify the wires going to the wiper switch. One of them will have always 12 volts, the others will get that as the lever is moved; if they don't then the switch is dead , replace it.
