    If your windshield wiper switch it in your dash then both cases are quick fixes just the windshield wiper motor is more expensive quickest way to find out is do a voltage test on the power wire going into your wiper motor if it shows 12 volts then it is your wiper motor if not it is a broken wire or the switch.
