87 GW wipers stopped working

Hey fellas,
So now when I turn on the wipers, I hear a single click but the wipers don't move. Not cool. Any suggestions on where to start?
Thanks!

bypass the intermittent wiper module.
unplug wiring from module and hook wiring directly together.
if wipers work module took a dump(common).
can get a used replacement from an xj if it's bad.
they're not made new anymore.

Thanks, I'll give that a try. Where is the module located?

It is just up under the dash to the left of the steering column. Remove the lower section of A/C ductwork that runs under the steering column, and it should be attached behind the dash with Velcro.

Ok, I bypassed the wiper module and wipers still didnt work. Where is the fuse for the wiper motor? Is there a relay?
Thanks,
Andy

no relay, uses a circuit breaker lower left corner next to fuse panel.
