Default wiper motor not working

I am more capable of working on old cars so these new one with a million miles of wiring and relay and puters just drive me mad. I have a 1992 SE and when i turn the wiper switch nothing happens. The turn signals and cruise as well as high beams all work just not the wipers. I went to the parts store and got another motor, pulled the plug off the other and still nothing. i am looking for a wiring diagram so i can trace which wires are hot can someone please help. thanx or if you can tell me why or what is wrong.

ren, The first check I would have done is a power & ground check at the wiper motor. Not trying to be funny, have you checked the wiper motor fuse?

renrag02, A lot of us here have a FSM (Factory Service Manaul) which contains step by step System Diagnosis instructions what to do. I suppose you could also go out and purchase a Haynes or Chilton Manual but I do not think they are as comprehensive. Of course the FSM will also contain ALL the wiring diagrams of your car. Ebay Motors is a good source for an FSM.
Besides the Fuse, markwb gave a good suggestion on checking the power & ground at the wiper motor. Let us know if there is any other way we can assist you. Good Luck.
