    well guys i was out checking some sites just now and i start hearing a loud buzzing noise then my windshield wipers quit working!!! i stopped and got out and pulled on em with them on high and they acted like they wanted to work but made an even louder buzzing sound and just slowly moved but i had to pullin on them or otherwise they would stop. anyone have any ideas on what it could be??? mind u its a 2003 ford f250 diesel with the 6.0. motor fried??? thanx for all the input in advance

    from the sound of it you should check the posts that come out of the hood that the wiper arms attach to there are little splines on there that can get stripped off and make your wipers not go but they will spin inside wiper arm.
    second thing I would check is the wiper transmission, that is the linkages that connect the wiper motor to the arms. see if it is doing anything. if it is not then its either the motor or the splines on the motor shaft.
    good luck.
