Do you have the puck (automated wiper/light)?

BTW: moved your post here for better exposure and, hopefully, faster help...

did you switch out the fuse or just look at it. could be a bad fuse. if the switch went bad, I would think one of the positions would work.

2008 wiper doesn't operate--fuse ok

I changed the fuse (old one looked ok)(I do not have auto sensor wipers)--still doesn't operate. I will get a new wiper motor if.. there is no other electronic components in the circuit. I would think ..the + goes to the fuse then wiper switch then wiper motor then ground. Is that all of the components in that circuit ? Please help ! Charlie B.

Check the voltage at the motor. if you have 12v or more when the switch is on then it is the motor.
