Could be the FUSE, the wiper motor, or the switch itself.

Check the fuse first. There should be a fuse box under the driver's side dash somewhere, and the inside panel will most likely have a chart showing which fuse controls which.

If the fuse is fine, checking the wiper motor with a voltmeter will determine if any power is getting to the motor. If there IS power going there when the switch is ON, it's not the switch at fault, it's the motor.

Hoping for your sake it's the fuse.

Windshield Wipper switch will not turn off, 2005 Trailblazer

There was a recall on the wiper circuit board cracking and causing the problems your having and at worst the wipers not working. For now you can pull the fuse to the wipers to save the wiper blades, but the problem is the circuit board where the wire harness clips on to the wiper motor cracks and will need to be re-soldered. You can check with the dealer to see if your wiper motor is still covered with the campaign a few years ago, if not you can buy the replacement circuit board at most larger auto parts store like Auto Zone and they can give you the step by step instructions to get the job done. A light tap to the electric motor where the wire harness will also fix this problem, but it really needs to be re-soldered or replaced. Good luck

Windsheild wippers stay on

There are 4 positions to the wiper switch (OFF, AUTO, LOW, HIGH). If the wipers stay on even in the OFF position, then the self-park is not working and you probably have to replace the motor.

Wiper motor and washer motor is one and the same..Replace the wipper motor. In 4x4 hi your turn and pull motion is one and the same and will give some resistance, however you might check your CV joints to make sure the are not damaged.
