I found the problem. I've been at it since 5pm now it 10pm. When I installed the piaa lights and pushed the wires through the firewall I had to make a small slice in the rubber. Instead of using a poker thing I used a Gerber knife!!! I didn't even go hard but I had actually slices the brown and gree wire!! Out of all wire why only this one I don't frikin know! Any ways I had a thought today to pull the harness out and check and sure enough that was it. I have everything working and back in place. That was not fun. But holly crap because of u I learned so much! I know this is the point of the forum however I'm really grateful for all your help!! Thank you!

going for a drive in the rain. Hehehe! (started to rain as I closed the hood! Imagin that. Didn't rain the whole time they were not working!)

Just wondering if you managed to get this problem sorted as my wipers go for around 20-30 seconds and stop in all speeds half way up the screen

Actually, a wiper assembly that refuses to move might have a simple blown fuse. But usually fuses don't blow on their own. Even at full stall, the current draw of the motor should be well below the fuse's rating. If the fuse is blown, odds are there's something else wrong, like a shorted wiper-motor armature or faulty wiring anywhere along the harness between the motor and the switch. Even a mechanical problem like a seized bushing can make a fuse eventually fail.
