well, nevermind, figured out the front wipers. Rear will get tackled later.
Turns out the PO messed with the ign. on + wire that goes to the control module, and it wasn't connected to anything, so no power was signaling the module to turn on. Haven't had time to do the rear yet. I thought it was something like this, but it took me a couple days to find.
