Sounds like you need new motors or maybe a fuse is messed up. I would recommend replacing both at this point to prevent further issues.. Around $600 just in case!

First check the multi function switch. The windshield wiper/turn signal switch,on the steering column this is a common problem. When they shut off do they park? meaning do they return down to there proper off position. Next move on to the wiper motor relay these sometimes wear and go bad its located in the power box under the hood, the final suspect is the wiper motor its self.
