Hello. It is possible that your windshield wipers are not working because of the motor. However, there are other components in your windshield wiper system that could prevent the windshield wipers from working. The windshield wiper transmission, combination switch, or a blown fuse are other possibilities for why your windshield wipers aren’t working.
