Look for a loose or broken wire to the wipers. Also check that they are earthed properly--firmly tightened down. Also look for a loose or broken earth wire. Worst case: It's the wiper switch in the steering wheel cluster. More expensive.

What would cause wipers and blower not to work on a 1994 ford escort?

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.

The shaft from the motor to the wiper actuating arms is possibly stripped or disconnected. You will need to trace the wipers back to the wiper motor to find the problem. As mentioned follow the linkages back to the motor as they sometimes pop out of their cups.

1992 Buick Blower motor resistor location?

It would help if you told us what model Buick this is. I am going to assume this is a Buick Car, FWD as the Roadmaster rarely kills a blower resistor. For most common location, open hood and look near cowl for a plug near the air conditioning box just forward of the windshield wipers. It should have several wipers and the resistor itself protrudes downward into the box held in place with two screws. Screws have 7mm, 8mm, or 1/4 inch hex head. If not: look near blower itself under the dash on the passenger side. The resistor should protrude upwards into the HVAC housing near the blower.

1. Set the blades at a position that is easy to work on. To do this turn the key on and turn the wipers on. When the wipers are straight up and down turn the key off. 2. Lift the blade from the windsield. Press the coil spring with a small screwdriver to release the blade. Move it back and forth and take it off. Press the new blade onto the arm pivot pin. Make sure the spring holds the blade to the pin. 3. Turn the key on and turn off the wipers. 4. You got 'er done.
