Sometimes when I start my 2004 Santa Fe, the rear windshield wiper comes on. The switch is in the off position. Even if I turn the vehicle off, it will still run until it decides to stop. Help.

If you will find the fuse that controls the rear wiper, and remove it, you can determine if the problem is "bleed over", which can be the result of an automobile accident.
In that case, a pinched wire somewhere can cause this problem.
If pulling the fuse stops it, then suspect the wiper switch itself.
God bless your efforts.

Windshield wipers run with switch turned off

I have a similar vehicle and I can tell you that they're prone to electrical problems, whether it's the ECM, the clock switch in the steering wheel, or just a bad ground. I would check all the grounds, especially coming from your wiper motor under your hood. Sometimes ground switches are used on "things", so when there is no ground, "things" think they're turned on. Could also be a stuck relay, but doubtful. Best of luck.

Rear wiper runs when front wipers are turned on even after it was replaced? Dealer not sure?

The rear wiper on CR-V's is designed to go on when the front wipers are on and either one of 2 things: 1. you turn the rear wiper switch on, or 2. when the front wipers are on, if you shift into reverse, the rear wiper automatically is activated. Is it one of these, or do they just run all the time the front wipers are on? If that's the case, you probably need to have the wiper switch replaced. If the dealer said he's not sure, go to another dealer.

Left windshield wiper not working

If one works and not the other, it is obviously not anything wrong with the electrical or wiper motor, it has to be the arm itself, just tighten it down. Sometimes they come lose, especially if it is froze and etc.
