I'd start by finding the fuse that serves the wipers and see if it's OK or blown. That's the most likely problem. If the fuse is blown, replace it with the same amperage fuse. If the fuse is OK, try turning on the wipers in a quiet place, maybe even with the ignition key turned on but without the motor running. If you can hear the electric wiper motor running, then the problem is most likely in the set of gears attached to the wiper motor. In that case you may have to buy the whole wiper motor and gearbox as a unit. I'd suggest looking for a used one. If the wiper motor isn't running, it must be an electrical problem. At that point you have to figure out whether the problem is the motor, the switch, or the wiring. To test the motor you should be able to attach a spare wire to the wiper motor contact, and touch the wire's other end to the positive post on the car battery. If the motor runs, that leaves the switch or wiring as the culprits. At this point it helps a lot to have a resistance meter so you can track down breaks in the wiring and switches that do or don't make a connection. Actually, a resistance meter (ohm meter) helps with checking fuses if your eyes are older like mine.

we had to replace the speed sensor in mine and it corrected the problem with the speedometer and the shifting. Good luck

Presumably if both stopped working at the same time the bulbs are okay, but worth checking. The fuses might be fine but the actual connection between wires might be loose/disconnected.

The fuse, if not, then the switch, then the motor, but by then you will also need a test light and/or a DMM.

The most common cause that windshield wipers stop working is a blown fuse. The windshield wiper motor may need to be changed is also common.

Windshield wipers are an important safety feature on cars. They stop working when their motor goes out, or when the blade is too worn out.

Left and right stopped working? Check the fuse and/or the flasher relay. Only the left or the right stopped working? Check the bulbs.

The number eight fuse is the fuse that controls the windshield wipers. The number eight fuse can be found in the first column, second from the bottom.
