Default 2006 wiper issue

The windshield wipers in my 2006 PT Criuser convertable stopped working today.
They have been working sparatically for the last week, today they completely stopped
When they are turned fully on, the signal lights and 4 way emergency lights work lazily, or not at all.
After a couple minutes, the dash lights come on and says no buS....(the S might be a 5).

Any suggestions?

No Bus means that your insturment cluster is not communicating with the onboard computer. Your cars have a "data bus" the same as a personal computer. It is basically just part of the computers wiring system. Try checking plug in connectors in your wiring system. This could possibly be somewhere besides behind the instrument cluster, such as at the computer. Another thing to check is the ground system. I don't know about your particular vehicle, but I have found a few vehicles with a loose ground wire, which was driving the instruments crazy. In those cases, there was a ground wire with a metal grommet attached to the metal body or dash structure somewhere under the dash.

Have accessed the wiper motor.
Cannot see undrneath to see how to unlock the wiring harness attached to the motor.
Don't want to break it.
Can anyone explain how?

Ok, when the wiper switch is on hi I'm getting 6.95 volts, when the switch is on low I'm getting 6.95 volts from 2 different wires.

Is this voltage correct??
If so, its the wiper motor thats bad.

If not, its something else.

And to my surprise, there is no fuse for the wiper motor listed in the manual.

These are from the wiring harness that plugs into the wiper motor

You really need to buy the FM factory manual like I did before even replacing or removing components. Most of the problem s is bad wires, grounds or solder joint points.
