Default Burned out the wipers

it snowed really heavy the other day, and i left my whipers on when i parked, went out side to move the car, and their was a large amount of snow on the windsheild, didnt think anything about it, and turn my car on, the whipers moved once, and havent moved scince

i was already having problems with them staying down in the correct place, does anyone have a clue on whats going on, because i dont
i pulled the fuse, and i can move the whipers freely
so i think everything ok, but why are they not moving when i turn them on?

you can move them freely? thats not normal.

sounds like you either blew the wiper motor, or the gears inside the motor assembly. should be a cheap fix from Ed Morad though.

probably. you have to remove the cowl to get to the drive assembly.

you are sure the wipers move freely? like you can grab them and run them through the entire wiper motion by hand?
