Windshield Wipers Not Working

I bought my '00 Camaro yesterday knowing the wipers don't work. I turned the switch to turn the wipers on, and only one wiper came up, so I had to pick it up and place it back towards the bottom of the windshield. I hear the wiper motor making noise, but the actual wipers themselves won't move. And obviously I need wipers to drive in the rain. I've searched a bit around Google and have never really gotten a full answer. Can anyone help me out with this?

The first thing I would check is make sure that the wiper arms are actually tight to the linkage. Sometimes wipers like to get striped out a little bit and they won't move when the motor moves.

This.
If that fails it could be the pulse board...that's what fixed my issue on the truck.
