SOURCE: windshield wipers
From your owners manual:
Fuse#11 30A , Wiper Run/Park
Relay, Wiper Hi/LO Relay, Windshield Wiper
Motor, Rear Washer Pump Relay
U will also need to check the relays if the fuse is ok, the relay, it is the underhood fuse box
Relay #202 — Front Wiper Run/Park Relay

Easy fix. Very very common chevy issue. the wiper motor goes but no wipers, or they work one time and not the next. drove me nuts for two years. It is the wiper control module. The board actually get moisture in it cracks the sod-er joints they are there go get magnifying glass. hair line cracks in the board. how ever good new auto zone advance auto who ever carries the board 30 bucks. located back of the fire wall by the wiper motor. three torx screws. remove torx. care full not to bend prongs when pulling board. replace with new screws and cover and board. seal new cover with silicon rtv so forth to re prevent moisture. when it rains, rain drops on this board by the top crack and will reoccur. but this is sure fix. did my truck and my buddies. Make sure to use silicon or don't waste your time. Been good ever since 1 year now.

This is a commoon problem with what is called the "Park pawl stop". The tab is most likely bent and needs to be re-aligned, then the wipers need to be re-timed. This re-timing can be a little difficult, although the re-aligning of the tab is failry simple.

Did you plug them all back in? lol j/p
Do your blinkers and your back windshield wipers work? It's either electrical or mechanical. Turn them on and poke around to see if you hear the motor doing anything. If you hear it, it's probably a broken linkage. If not, start with the fuses and work from there.
It's possible that by unplugging the battery and then plugging it back it, the fuse for the wipers received an electrical surge, blowing it. Consult your manual to see where the fuse for your model is and check to see if it's blown.
