Rear wiper not working

I am completely stumped...at the connector there are 5 wires: black,(this has a ground), orange (is permanently hot), pink with black stripe (goes hot when doors closed, sensors good), gray (goes hot when you switch to position 1), green (goes hot when you press water pump, water pump working). seems like I have all correct voltages at connector, I have tried two new motors and still not working. What can the problem be?

Check where the wiper arm goes thru the door . They get road grime and crap in them and then they can't move . Try to move it without the motor hooked to it . About once a year or so I have to take the one on my jeep apart and clean and lube it . Your motor might be just fine .
