I would start by checking the relays in the engine bay... look in your repair manual to see exactly which ones.
Get into the wiper motor. I guarentee(sp) one or two white caps fell off. Just put them back(clue them). Make sure you add grease to the arms.
windshield motor

thanks for the info on the windshild their any special tool that i need to remove the bad caps since the arms would not move? also is this something i can do myself i use to be a machinist so i am mechanically incline thanks..
It is a no brainer. Anyone can do this. You will not damage anything. The caps are shaped like a hemisphere and snap in to hold the wiper arms in place.
Lack of grease pushes the cap off after a decade. When mine fell off I glued it and applied lots of auto grease.
thanks ...what would i need to remove to get to the caps? the dash board? do i have to buy new caps?
thanks... guys i'll chk with a parts store about the wiper arms
check to see if the nut that connects the wiper arm to the motor is tight. i had this same problem, and it ended up being just a loose nut. just look at the base of teh wiper arm until you see a nut on the exterior (facing the sky) and make sure that it's tight.
same prob

I had the same prob.... I opend the area where the motor assembly is and guess what... The bushing that snaps onto the motor arm fell off the motor and the

second arm also fell off its connection to the driver side wiper. I poped them back together untill they go again or I have time to change them as I ordered

the arms that same day... about 50 bucks for both
