Icon6 Windshield wipers not moving

my sister's 99 SH wipers stop moving, could it be the motor gone bad?
The water sprayer still works, but could it be the switch?
I have my 4th gen manual, is the 5th gen wiper system similar?

Could be the motor, switch, relay, fuse, etc.. You might have to start doing a little detective work if it's not anything obvious.

Motor still running eh? Probably a problem with the motor itself then... If it has power and it's not doing anything then it probably has a failure on the inside.

If you can still hear your motor running, then the motor is fine. The wiper arm linkage is broke. Pop your wiper cowl and check rod a and b. I'll be the one that links to the motor is either popped off because the plastic socket broke, or the whole rod end broke. I just replaced the rod a and b in an 01 Accord for the same thing.

I am having a similar problem but mine are not flush like they used to be. They are moving fine, but just won't lay flush. My sprayers quit working too.
