Re: windshield wipers

More info would help. Can you hear your wiper motor run, and they just don't move? Has everything thawed out. It could be ice or snow packed under the cowl and have the linkage jamed. Have you checked fuses?

Re: windshield wipers

I had the same issue. It took 2 days for them to thaw out. I just turned the defroster on high and it kept my windshield clean to drive it.
