does the motor sound like it is trying to go?  have you checked for voltage?

could be the linkage binding, new bushings might help that.

could also be the switch.

Simple test....ground the motor housing with a wire. Wrap a piece of wire or touch a piece of wire to the motor housing and a ground point with the wipers on. See if they work. Solved my problem. HTH

Do you have intermittent wipers or standard ones?
If you have no time to answer the questions or try the advice then don't expect to fix it anytime soon!

I THEY WERE STANDARD ONES. THE PROBLEM IS NOT IN THE SWITCH OR WIPER MOTOR. SO IT HAS TO BE WITHIN THE WIRING.. I NEED HELP

As mentioned, try running a seperate ground wire over to the wiper motor case and see if it starts up.

Blown fuse
Faulty instrument panel switch.

Faulty motor.

I would try the ground strap on the bottom driver side. My 86 had a problem with it not making good contact(especially when raining). Push it until the strap touches the metal.
