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.
