Also, will the above item I have work to test power to the harness on the wiper motor? Or should I get a multi meter? Should I have the car on, with the wipers turned on, while I check the motor harness?
This is all new to me, as I've never done in depth electrical checks on my car. I've searched and searched for how to's and can't seemed to find any insight.
...Last week in 20-25 degree weather,...I used my washer fluid (regular fluid)...That was the last time my washing fluid AND wipers worked...

That. Fuse 5 powers both the wiper motor and the washer motor. If the fluid froze, it would lock up the washer motor and blow fuse 5 (10A). Visual checks of the fuses are often not reliable. Either pull it out and check it with a multimeter (in ohms mode) or replace it - but if it's still frozen, it will just blow again. Oh - and when it thaws, unless it is below half full, siphon some out and fill with winter fluid. If below half full, just fill with winter fluid.
