WINDSHIELD WIPERS NOT WORKING

2001 Buick Lesabre

Electrical problem
2001 Buick Lesabre 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 120000 miles

Brand new owner of this car so I have no past history. Got the car home and no wipers working at all, any thoughts? Also the air bag light is on, as well as the service engine light. With the service engine light would you lean towards emission/oxygen sensors more on this, or should I have it hooked on to a code reader?
Thanks.

As far as the wipers, check to see if you are getting power to the wiper motor.

As for the check engine light, have the computer scanned at a nationally recognized parts store. Most will do it for free.

Let me know what you find.

Changed the wiper motor with one from a junk yard, all positions work properly but when you turn them off all together there is a 20 second pause then they come back on and wipe every four seconds untill you turn off the motor. I was told causally that it could be the wrong motor all together even though it fits perfectally.
ON the engine lights I'm waiting to borrow a code reader to see whats doing.
