Wiper not working

I have a 91 ford escort that the wipers quit working. Replaced the motor but they are still not working.
Circuit breaker is fine and they make a clicking sound when you turn the switch.
Any help.

Did you lubricate the crank arms with water resistant grease?

No I have not done that. There is also no power getting to the motor.

Sometimes, because of a bad switch, you will have power for parking wipers and power for normal wiper operation at the same time to the motor.

On some installations, you always have power, but because of a bad switch, you will have the ground for parking wipers and the ground for normal wiper operation at the same time to the motor.

Get a wiring diagram for your model and check for ground and power to the wiper motor connecter.
