wipers not working, what to do to fix?

Lucky me, I'm driving down the highway and it starts pouring down rain, so I turn on the wipers. Low and behold NOTHING HAPPENS!!! Not good! They've always worked before. Why not now? Luckily when I push in on the knob, the wipers work for the spray amount of time (3 or 4 swipes). So I had to keep pressing in on the knob the whole time I was driving. So I know the wipers DO work, but I cant turn them on and get them to work...I've searched for answers everywhere and can't seem to find anything. I don't have an owner's manual so I can't tell what fuse it is, but I looked at all the fuses and they seem to be fine. Can someone shed some light on my situation for me please?!

Wiper relay is shot. Easy fix. It's in the power distribution box next to the diver side shock tower. $12 and you're good to go.

PS. A simple test is to swap it out with another relay in the box.

Where do I buy a replacement relay? Advance Auto or Auto Zone?

Okay well actually I don't think I need a relay. If they look like the big fuses, then those are all good. I'm not sure what I need to replace under the hood. Everything looks fine. Like I said, I don't have a manual.
