Red face 06 ranger-wipers gone south

Any history about the ranger's wipers/washer just quiting? no blown fuses/connections clean/no obvious wires unplugged. Manual list a ton of relays and dianostic run downs, sigh. Comments
Thanks,...

Try checking the two relays in the main power box in the engine compartment. There is a park relay and one other. It seems the park relay is usually the main culprit. On my girlfriend's Explorer, I changed both and it fixed the problem.

If they are on the turn signal switch aka the "multifunction" switch, it may be what went south.
