well my friend, your windshield wipers work off of an electric motor powered by your battery which is charged by the alternator, hope this makes sense to you, if wipers arent working it may be a fuse or the electric motor. if your alternator belt is not on or your alternator isn't working your battery will bo dead pretty quick and your car wont start at all. hope i helped if you have any car questions
