Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Niether my wipers or the washer fluid will work. Checked the fuse but that is still good.
Need to know if there is anything else that may have failed to cause them both to not
function.

Any chance you just replaced the wiper motor and forgot to connect the wires all the way or replace a ground wire ? Could your problem be the dash or column switch for the washer pump/wiper mechanism and not the wiper motor or washer pump at all ? Find a way to test the operating switch as well (electrical test light or test probe).
