wipers don't work

Is there a fuse or is the motor bad. I turn them on and nothing happens. No squiting or wiping?

There is a fuse but also check the switch. Mine does funny thing now and then. Hopefully your motor isn't bad. Good luck

The switch is what you rotate on the turn signal lever (right side) behind the steering wheel. Don't have my manual with me but also check under driver side dash for the other fuse block.

The turn signals work fine and the fuse is good. Would I need to replace the turn signal assemby or is there anothe part I would have to buy?

It's more than likely the motor.

I don't know about it being the motor. If there is no washer fluid coming out either, then I would suspect the switch. Last time I looked at the switch it was about $120. I found out my switch is ok, but my motor is going.

Who needs wipers anyway? Any way to jerry-rig it?

Check the ground at the motor, loosen the mounting bolts and retighten them. I had that problem and it solved it.
