Default Rear wiper arm doesn't work at all

Alright, I tried searching and read through every applicable thread that popped up but nothing helped. My rear wiper arm doesn't work at all. Nothing. I push it in so it's on the delay, nothing. I push and hold to wash, nothing. It was acting kinda weird before this, it would only move about 1/4 way and it would stop. It's a 2000. Any suggestions? I'm hoping its just a fuse.

Unplug the motor and use a multi meter to see if there is power going to the motor at all when someone presses the button. If so replace the motor.

My arm works but it won't squirt. I can hear the motor whirring but nothing comes out. Obviously my hose is clogged. Do I replace the whole hose or is there a simple way to dislodge whatever is blocking it. I only want this feature working again so that I squirt the cars behind me. Sorry for threadjacking.

If doesn't work at all and no response then it must be the motor itself...
Start looking for a replacement cause that motor won't work anymore...
