Wiper problem

My wipers went half way up on the winshield then stopped. I pushed them back down by hand. When I turn the ignition on again they moved a couple of inches and stopped. The washer button squirts water but the wipers don't move. I turned the knob back and forth and nothing happens. Any ideas of where to start looking?

Wiper problem

The truck is a 1999 F-250 Super Duty Diesel. I checked the fuses and they were good. The washer pump still works and they are on the same fuse. I haven't proceeded any farther yet.

wiggle the wiper switch around while trying to make it work and see what
happens ,if they do try to work while wiggling back and forth ,would replace switch ,if wiggling that doesnt work ,believe i would look towards replacing motor

wiper problem

Hey Clearyex, if you need a switch pm me. I have one if you need it we can work somthing out. The switch costs 100 dollars at the dealership. My problem was turn signals and I thought it was the switch when it was a short in the wiring so this switch has never been used. It is brand new in the box. I opened the box hooked it up to trouble shoot. But once I found out the switch was not the problem I reinstalled the old switch.

Wiper problem

Well I dug deeper into it and it turned out that the parking mechanism on the wiper motor is bad. Curiosity got the best of me so I pryed it apart and bypassed that part and the motor works fine by itself. Unfortunately the part I need comes as a motor assembly. Ordered one today and will get it tomorrow. Thanks for all of the input and help. Here in Ocean Shores wipers are a necessity, so far we've had over 20 inches of rain this month!I can't wait to go south for the winter.
