1998 Chevy S-10

I turned the wipers on when they were frozen (winter time) and they didn't move. The next time I turned them on the passenger side worked but the drivers side wiper went all the way to the left, sticking out towards the side mirror. I had to pull over and push it back down, now it will not work at all. The passenger side still works.
Do you

Hello ehesenflow

The wiper motor is most likely the problem, but to make sure the wiper linkage is not loose from the wiper transmission, it must be removed:

Disconnect the negative battery cable.

Remove the cowl vent grille and screen retainers

Installation

Install the controller on the wiper motor and attach the motor wiring harness to the controller.
Place the wiper motor in position and install the two retaining screws. Do not tighten the screws until the wiper motor shaft is centered in the tailgate hole. Once the shaft is centered, tighten the screws to 57 inch lbs. (6.5 Nm).
Attach the wiper motor electrical connection, then install the end gate trim panel.
Install the spacer and nut onto the shaft and tighten the nut to 53 inch lbs. (6 Nm).
Install the wiper arm assembly and connect the negative battery cable. Check for proper motor operation.
