Windshield Wipers not working

Electrical problem 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 55000 miles

Yesterday we had a huge snow storm in my town, I went out to the car to start it and the windshield wipers were covered in a heap of snow. They started making a tick tick tick noise and then stopped after I brushed off the snow.
I was driving and they were working fine and then out of nowhere I used them and they got stuck out on my windshield. Now they don't move and they don't even make a noise.

Is this a motor issue or could it potentially be a fuse? What should I do next?

Thanks!

It sounds like the motor gear are stripped or you lost the linkage You should take it apart to see whats going on here are guides to help you get the job done.

Check out the diagrams (Below)

Replace R4 and R8 Relays which control Wiper operation. If no change in behavior. Measured voltage at all the appropriate wiper connector. So I checked the motor and the gears where stripped out so I had to replaced it. Now it all works again. Thanks for the diagrams. I love this site
