Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for you question.

I am not sure I understand exactly what is going on. The wipers only work in one particular setting?

No they started messing up so I put new motor on and when i tested it to make dure the motor was working and it does I turn switch on every position and it works but when I put wiper blades on they won't move on any setting
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 7 months ago

So you did not replace the wiper motor. You just removed it and operated it not connected to the car right?

Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 7 months ago

When you operated it while not fully hooked up, it worked in all modes? Is that correct?

I did buy a new one but it does the same thing as old one works unil I put on wipers
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
that's correct
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 7 months ago

So when you get a wiper motor from the dealer, it comes with the pivots and all the linkage. So if you are operating it when not hooked up to the linkage assembly, that could be your issue that the linkage is causing a strain on the motor and keeping it from operating properly

I bought motor from advanced auto it didn't come with anything using what was already there
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 7 months ago

Yeah.. If you get the part from the dealer, it comes as a complete assembly. Never trust after market electrical parts. So the wipers have a limit switch in them. If it senses to much pressure, it won't operate. So you most likely have a issue with in the linkage operation causing your problem

How do you fix that
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 7 months ago

You would need to replace the linkage assembly. That comes with the wiper motor from the dealer.
