    I know sod all about Fiats, other than to avoid them, but the wiper mechanism seizing is a known problem. If the linkage is seized the wiper motor or control unit may detect an excessive current draw and turn the motor off.

    Then your best bet is to have someone put a scanner on it and find out if the BCM module is sending and/or receiving a reliable signal.
    Scroll down to "Fiat BCM cloning service" where it seems that BCM faults are not uncommon.
