    I was driving home from work the other day and my wipers stopped in the upright position. I'm wondering if it's the motor or switch. Also every once in a while the wipers will jump kinda, and this happens when I don't have the wipers turned on. What do you guys think it could be? Is there a way to test either one?

    Try to tighten the bolt at the base of the wiper blade. Some times they come loose. Both came loose on my truck at the same time guy at the shop though I was testing him.

    No, that would not be the problem at all. Any other ideas? By the way I put this in the wrong sections, it's for a 2000 Taco
