windshield wipers

my windshield wipers on my 1998 jeep wrangler worked fine since i got the jeep but this morning when i went out to it and started it up it was snowing really bad so i went to turn them on and they didnt move so i shut them off and just figured it was cause of the snow piled on them so i cleaned it off and tried again and nothing does anyone no what might be wrong?

might be a fuse but its not a good idea to clear snow off your windshield if you have a lot of it. A number of things can happen and most are not good.

they could just be frozen there, has happened to me before...

either the actuall wiper is frozen to the windshield, or the arms inside the cowl are frozen.

My wipers had quit working. Buddy asked if my turn signals, radio, and power port worked. They didnt. The culprit ended up being my ignition switch sticking. Jeep would start and run but it must have had a bad connection in the switch for the accessories.
