A bad fuse may be the cause of windshield wipers not working on a 1998 Lumina. The switch that activates the wiper motor is another possible cause for the wipers not working.

Well, both the wipers and the blower could have a burned out fuse. Of course, they both could have a burned out motor. I would run a hot wire from the battery to the wipers and the blower motor. If they worked, I'd be looking for a fuse or bad switch.
Dryness will cause the wipers to vibrate or jitter against the glass. If there is not enough moisture on the windshield (for example, a light sprinkle of rain) the wipers may move with a jerky motion. Also, the wipers could be very old, and the wiping rubber/vinyl could have lost some of its softness and flexibility. If you mean vibration when they are not active, the wind against the windshield could cause them to flutter if they are not properly seated. A clean windshield and new wiper blades will usually cure the vibration.
Most likely fuse(s). Could be the switch too but probably fuse.
