You need to take off the plastic cowling at the back underneath the windscreen there you will see the mechanism for the wipers it will be obvious what is wrong with the linkages if the motor is okay.

Location of the fuse box in my 2006 sportage My windshield washer fluid wont spray front or back and wanted to see if it was a fuse

If it is the fuse, the wipers will not work either. Check your reservoir is full and listen to hear if you can hear the pump running. If not, it could be the pump that is inopeative, the connector plug that has come undone, the inlet to the pump is blocked or the outlet is kinked.

Front windshield wippers stoped working still hear motor humming but nothing happens

Hi,
Sounds like your wiper linkage have loosen up or the linkage from the motor arm got disconnected.
The solution would be to bring that car to your mechanic or dealer to have them reconnect the wiper linkage, a plastic clip lock might have broken and needs to be replace, the parts is less than $5.
Hope that solves your problem!
Thanks for using Fixya!

On my Kia Sportage 'V' reg my windshield wipers stopped working. it isn't the fuse and you can hear the motor trying to work.How do I remove the wipers so that I can lift the plastic cowling between...

Some wiper arms are simply a push fit onto the drive shafts and some have a nut securing them on under a cover which has to be lifted up first. Try lifting up any plastic covers on the base of the arm at the windshield. If it looks like there is no cover then the arms are held on by the force of the springs and by a taper on the drive shafts and if you lift the arms off the windshield and gently rock them as you pull them away from the vehicle they will release..Just make sure that before you refit the arms that you run the wiper motor and allow it to self park as I have seen wiper arms remove paint when they have been dragged off the windscreen and over the paintwork and the wiper motor is easily powerful enough to cause real damage..

2006 kia wipper works but stops in the middle of the windshield

It sounds like the the circuit board has gone bad and does not know where the base is any more so it will stop at the middle or the windshield. Auto Zone should have a new board if it's replaceable like the GM products. Good luck and hope this helps, In the mean time you can always turn your wipers on and pull the fuse out when it's at the down position so it's not up.
