Buick century 2000 wipers stay upright when turned off otherwise works fine
I found the following description on the web, this covers a bunch of the questions I was going to ask...
I own a 2000 Silo and wondered the same thing and do see some GM vans with this problem.
When I bought mine I also bought the Haynes Repair manual (1997
thru 2001 all models GM) #38036 to learn how to fix this and a LOT of
other components in/on the van.
For $20 it's worth it.
To answer your question: If the wipers stop at the position
they're in when the switch is turned off (Fail to park), disconnect the
multi-function switch electrical connector. (This is located under the
dash next to the firewall and steering column)
If the wipers now park, replace the multi-function switch. If the
wipers still do NOT park, check the wiring from the wiper motor to the
switch for a short circuit. If the circuits are good, replace the wiper
Note: There are other adjustments needed for proper operation than just bolting and new motor on.
You can have a look at this manual at any automotive parts supply store.
