Alright, so I replace the steering column the other day and everything worked fine, except for the wipers. I went through a Chilton's manual and found nothing on fuses or relays. Went to four different auto parts stores, and the only fuse they could find is for the rear wiper.

So I assumed it was the wiper motor, as it has a (I assume) direct connection to the column.

I replaced the wiper motor, but still nothing. Does anyone have ANY ideas? I am at a loss right now.

Test to see if the switch is getting power.

The motor seems to not be getting power, but testing the wires shows power is flowing. Unfortunately I cannot find any type of wiring diagram in order to see what is hot and what is ground.

Plan on going through everything tomorrow and testing each wire... and if that doesn't work, I'm just gonna stock up on RainX.

The motor gets power from the on/off switch when it's turned on. Test to see if the switch is getting power, maybe it's bad.

Never gonna believe this.

Tested the motor, switch, wiring, fuse, exhaust, tire pressure, and everything else to make sure nothing was missed. Turns out it was the actual control stem. Apparently it was bent just enough to make noise, but not connect with the contacts.

Now... my windshield won't go back up. Because the hinges are off center. Crying or Very sad
