Rear windsheild wiper

I just put my hard top back on for winter and the windshield wiper and fluid doesn't work. The defroster work though. Anyone have any suggestions ?

If neither work, I'd think the place to start is the switch... the wiring going to the back of the top must be at least partially good if the defrost works.

Check the fuse behind the glove box #6 I believe. Defrost relay is#15. At least thats for a 2005.

Check fuse first as Jeffery had suggested before proceeding to next steps :Take out a volt meter and check power at the wiper to rule out a bad wiper. If no power, check at back of switch to rule out bad switch.
