It actually could be a grounding issue. You could just experiment and run a ground wire from one of the mounting bolts of the wiper motor and run to a grounding strap attatched to the firewall. See what happens next time it rains.

Check to make sure your fuse is set all the way down first. Could be a bad ground too. Check the wiring at the wiper motor and maybe clean the ground and terminals with either alcohol or electric cleaner and make sure the are dry before you plug it back in. It sounds like a power to the wiper motor issue. If that doesn't fix it your wiper motor may have an internal short.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. Your wiper fuse may have blown causing the wipers to stop immediately. Check your fuse box for the exact location of the wiper fuse. If the fuse is good, you will need to see if your wiper motor is working. If it is not, the motor is bad. Since your car is just an 08 model, it may just be the fuse. If you have any questions, let me know. Check these solutions first. If neither don't work, let me know.
