Guessing you might have pulled on some wires at the fuse box.
There is a large plug that goes to a module on the back of the fuse box that might have been disconnected.

Just to rule it out, you can test the wiper motor by hooking battery positive to the GRN/BLK and ground to the BLU (low) or BLU/YEL (high).

Rain-X

not to be flippant, but the stuff is a charm. Get the original formula, it leaves a film that's tough to get off, but your broken wipers will be 80% forgotten.
