Re: windshield wipers won't go down or move
The first thing I'd check is that the wiper arms are on good and tight. Where the arm meets the car, there is a little 'nub' that you can tighten with a wrench or maybe even a socket if you want to get fancy. Mine get loose every once in a while, and the wiper then is frozen but it's usually one at a time. If you turn the wipers on, you'll see the little nub moving I think. Either way, can't help to tighten it. Might be something worse though, but that's what I'd do first.
