Motor burned up, but it should have blown the fuse, i suggest unsticking your wipers, rechecking your fuses, check for a realy, or your wiper switch is toast.

The wiper system in your vehicle is a simple system. Most of the electronics are in the wiper motor. There are 2 fuses on the interior fuse panel. Fuse #106 and fuse #33. I would start by testing for voltage at the wiper motor connector. Pin #5 (dark green wire) and pin #8 (black and pink wire) should both have voltage present with the key on. If voltage isn't present on both wires then you will have to trace the wires back to the fuse panel. Next test the 2 ground wires pin#3 (pink and orange wire) and pin#6 (black wire). Connect your test light to the positive battery terminal and probe the 2 ground wires. If the ground is good the test light will light.
The other thing I would check is the connectors on the multifunction switch. Sometimes the wires will pull right out of the connectors, this happens more on steering columns with tilt. Pull on each wire to be sure they are tight in the connector shell.
I would also check connector c145. A black 16 pin connector located on the drivers side of the engine compartment along side 4 other similar connectors on a plastic bracket (behind wheel well). Examine all the wiring near the connector also.
I hope this helps!

Trace wires coming from switch and at wiper motor - I suspect a wire has chaffed through and is shorting across. With age wires get brittle and rub through. Check closely at where wires go through bulk-heads

I know on chevys that there's a module on the motor itself that is a common problem in those trucks. I'd check and see if there's one on the ford. It costs a whole $20 at the oreillys

Best if you have a wiring diagram of at least the part of
the curcuit your going to work on (wiper circuit)
That applies to any electrical issue,simply can't start your
checking or testing without a road map.
If it were to guess for you,I would say the motor has failed
Even with a wiring diagram it isn't always easy to jump it
once out of the car,to test it. You won't have the internal
wiring diagram for the motor.
The switch you can turn on & use your volt meter at the
wiper motor with it disconnected,but again need to have the
diagram to probe the correct wires
