Do you have the motor grounded??? Sometimes the ground strap falls off and does weird things when this happens.

Rap on the motor with a rubber mallet with the switch in the on position. If it starts to work, the motor is bad---rebuild time.

before i check anything (like voltage) i always add a ground wire to one of the long motor casing screws and the other end to a clean spot on the body somewhere. if i had a digital camera, i'd show you my old truck(84) it's wipers have been flawless since i did that, and i've fixed MANY customer's vehicles that way.

if that doesn't fix it, i'll look in a book tomorrow to see what can be happening

let us know if that fixes it
