Hello, my name is ***** ***** thank you for using just answer. I would remove the bezel from around the steering column, and disconnect the wiper switch. If the wipers shut off, it will be the switch. If they do not, It will be the motor.

Hopefully the information I supplied helped. Please leave me a 5 star rating, if you do not feel I deserve a 5 star rating, please let me know ahead of time and I will make sure I have done all that I can to assist you, thank you.
