thought it was the fuse. turned the wipers on with ice on the windshield. Stuck o Mundo! Fuse is good got power to the relay module. Put a new module in and still no go. I guess it's the switch or wiper motor, got no way to tell.

    Tapped motor while moving arms. Still no go. Yes, switch was on. How often do the switches go?

    You were moving the arms? If so check the nut on the wiper transmission at the wiper arm.
