Front Wiper Relay? (2002 V6)

My wipers have done a few odd things over the last couple months. Example - The intermittent setting will occasionally wipe inconsistently... wipe, wipe, pause, wipe, pause, wipe pause, wipe, wipe, pause.

Tonight, I sprayed my windows by pulling the wiper control stalk towards me. This usually sprays the window and wipes until I let go. Normally, I'll get two full wipes after I let go and then the wipers park themselves. Tonight, after I let go, I got 1-3/4 wipes but the wipers stopped in the middle of the windshield. I had to pull the stalk a few more times to get them to park properly. I tried them again a little while later and they worked normally.

I found the fuse location in the manual. I'm going to check that tomorrow. I figure if that's OK, there might a problem with the wiper relay. Does anyone know where it's located and where I might be able to get one (aside from the dealership)?

The owner's manual maintenance section shows the location of the Power Distribution Box.
The box is in the engine bay on the driver's side next to the fender & near the airbox.
I'm assuming the wiper relay is in there.
