Ok first you need to look at the front power distribution box. It has 3 fuses that are for the wipers number 28 that is 5amp and number 3 a 30 amp and number 55 it a 7.5 amp. Then check the 2 wiper relays. Then the wiper switch and the general module after that. On the wiper switch make sure that the black wire with the blue stripe has power in the pulse and slow and fast position. Make sure that the black wire with the green stripe has power coming into the switch and make sure that the brown wire with the black stripe is connected to a good ground. These wires are all at the wiper/washer switch. Let me know what you find and we will go from there.

Ok if you don't mind me asking how did you check the relay's. I need to get as much info as possible so I can get you in the direction of fixing it ok. If all seems good here then I will walk you through checking the wiper switch ok. You will need to have a digital multi meter to test the switch. Thanks.

Ok then I need you to check some voltage points to see what is or isn't happening ok. First on wiper relay one there is a brown wire with a blue stipe that goes to general module make sure there is power there. Then the red wire with the blue stripe that goes from wiper relay one to wiper relay two make sure that there is power there too. Then from wiper relay two make sure there is power coming from the brown wire with the black stripe. Let me know what you find here first and we will go from there. These tests may require the key to be on.
