I had a similar problem. Was not electrical. It was the nut that mounts the wiper transmission arms to the motor, it had come loose. Also, the transmission arms were seized with rust which is why the nut came loose to begin with. I went to the salvage yard and got the transmission system for $75.00 instead of the $400.00 Saturn was asking. It took some doing but, with the help of the Haynes manual managed to replace it myself ( I am not mechanically inclined)
If it is not the wiper motor, which I went through too (sounds like it is not)
It involves removing exterior the wiper cowling from below the windshield (got fiddle with the hood up and down when pulling this off.)
On the right hand side there will be a whole that Leeds under the dash area, this is where the wiper motor is. You will see the nut and wiper arm transmission, careful that the swing arm is in the 9:00 position before tightening the nut or your wipers will not cycle properly.
