Wiper motor
#1
This might have been covered in the past, can not find in search of forums. Wipers not working. Checked fuse okay, wiper motor runs off the car on the bench, put in new wiper switch. Still does not work, checked my ground seems okay. Getting power too the motor at the connection plug. I just can't figure this out.

Try running a jumper wire from a good ground (on the engine) to the wiper motor.

Yep, triple check that you've got a good ground.

I think it grounds through the bolts to the body. Paint can be an enemy here

Exactly Tn, the body must be grounded. Recently replaced mine.

There should be a ground strap that is part of the wiper motor assembly, top left. Sometimes the grease inside has morphed into "gum". I've repaired two by disassembly, cleaning, re-greasing, and making sure the cancel switch is adjusted properly. Chuck
