wiper problem

2001 Aurora 4.0 I was warming up my car this morning, and my wipers came on ( they 're automatic ) and the one on drivers side stopped working. The one on the passenger side still works, I can move the one on the drivers side by hand. I was wondering if there is some kind of pin in the linkage or if the gear might be stripped.

Just pull the cap off the wiper arm and retighten the nut on the arm. See it all the time in cold weather at my shop. Make sure the wipers are in the rest position before you tighten it. If that doesn't work then the problem is in the wiper linkage and you will have to remove the cowl to access.

Thanks I'll try that in a couple days when I can get it back in the garage. It's occupied by my son in laws truck right now. I'll let you know if it works.
