If I remember correctly, your wiper motor is mounted to the firewall, likely on the drivers side. You can locate it easily by turning the key on and turning on the wipers. Just listen to the motor and follow the sound. To see what's going on with the washer portion, you need to carefully remove the plastic cover.
If you have a circuit board inside, be careful not to break it. You need to look at the pump and pump actuator to see what's working or not. (check for voltage and mechanical operation)
To fix it, you can sometimes get a pump rebuild kit but if the electrical part isn't functioning, unless you are trying to keep the car absolutely stock, there are aftermarket external pumps you can add on, using a push button on the dash. It's an easy install and far cheaper than replacing the entire wiper motor assembly. Another option is to go to a scrapyard and find a fluid reservoir from a Chrysler or any other car that uses a pump on the reservoir. Find one that fits reasonably well in your engine compartment and just attach the hoses to your system. Then all you need is a wire from a power source to the push button, then to the pump, and a ground for the pump housing.
