The mechanism could be broken or a fuse could have snapped when the wiper blade could not move. Get on the Web search and look up your vehicle by year and model. Then see if you can look up an Owners manual if you do not have one.

Inside the Manual there will be a Fuse Directory. It will list items by function and show the size of fuse. You can also Web search the fuse panel for the location of the correct fuse.

Sometimes parts are grouped to a single fuse to save space and fuses. Find the rear wiper in the Fuse Directory and then see if that fuse is broken.

SOURCE: windshield wipers won't work right

The windsheild wiper relay might be stuck or broken. Try tapping it with something or replace it. Could also be the the switch (lever that you control the wipers with) i hope this helps and good luck with diagnosing your problem.

Wiper arm dislocated at the base

The wiper blades sometimes are frozen to the windshield. If so turning the wipers on can cause it to come apart. You have a ball and socket connection. Normally a pear of Channel lock pliers are what you need, depending on your access. Just pop it together. And remember to loosen your wipers off from the windshield prior to getting into your car.

Wipers were frozen but would not work when thawed

if you turned them on when they were frozen then you may have damaged the motor or linkage to wipers. the first thing to do is to check your fuses to make sure the wiper fuse is good. if not then replace the fuse and try the wipers, also turn key on with engine off, turn wipers on and listen to see if you hear the wiper motor running if you do then maybe something came apart,most linkage snaps together, hope this helpscc019cf.gif

Windshield wipers wont turn but the wiper motor runs

you likely broke the plastic gear inside the wiper motor by turning wiper on when wipers were frozen to glass. you will have to replace the motor.
you can buy motor on Ebay cheap.
you have to remove screen at bottom of windshield for access. remove side windshield mouldings to be abe to get screen off.
watch very, very carefully how you get wiper linkage out or you will have a hard time getting it back in.
