Rear wiper blade never worked after purchasing from previous owner. Does not move or make any sound when activated. Just want to find a way for me to fix without going to mechanic.

Wiper motor is intermittent, I have replaced the motor and switch still the same. Works when cold (below 65) but not when warmer. Last item to try is the relay.
