either there is a fuse out of the rain sensor is not working but it should still work manualy. look for the fuse should be under the hood I believe and I'm sure based on the year it is not the motor that has gone out. one thing that you can try is switch the wipers on and see if you can gently pull up the wiper in the direction that it goes. if it works you have a dead spot or worn spot in the wiper motor and might need to be replaced. if you have the book in the car look in the back under fuses and it should have a layout and what one it should be. if not buy a lite tester hook it to ground and turn on the key and go through the fuses if one side has power and the other side doesn't then it is bad. I hope this helps

Thanks! Will try your suggestions!
