Wiper motor ... Is there a fuse ?

My wipers stopped working. I do not see a fuse underneath the dash dedicated to the front wipers.
I hope I did not mess anything up when I had the windshield folded down recently.

Not sure about the fuse, but I had a similar problem. Turns out the wires connected to the wiper motor had worked themselves loose over time. Just dropped the windshield and tightened them up and was back in business.

Did the wires come loose at a connector ? And it was as simple as pushing it back in ?

before messing with the windshield, look on the driver side, under the dash, and make sure everything is connected. You may have just disconnected the wiring. when I took my windshield down to replace mine, i opened up a brand new can of worms (broke my windshield hinges, and found stuff I would not have noticed that needed replaced.) After replacing the hinges, the doors don't fit on quite right, and it is just a PITA if you don't have to. Look at the connections first. If you are unsure which it is, the wiring is the only wiring that goes all the way up to where the tub meets the windshield, so you can follow it with your hand.

Good luck, and I hope it is just the connection.

found the harness that goes up to the motor. But there are like 5 or 6 wires. I wish I know wish ones were Hot and Ground to the motor ... i could test it.
Maybe its the motor, maybe its the switch. I need to eliminate one or the other.
Any wiring diagrams online ? I just order a Haynes manual, but it won't be here for a couple days.

I figured it out. I traced the wires from the motor, got to the first connector, ran 12 volt power to it, motor worked.
Kept tracing the wires to the intermittent box, found the connector disconnected on the opposite side.
Glad I did not have to spend any money ! ... Just an hour of my time.
