Sounds like you got a wiper motor problem or a sticking wiper rack,see if you can pull them back to the proper position if it is very tight you probably got a tight rack...

I have a Ford mercury and my ac stoped my Windows stoped working and my wipers stoped but all fuses are good

Possible ignition switch problem. Try gently moving the key back and forth slightly while the wiper switch is in the on position. If they start working then the ignition switch will be defective

96 bonivlle I was using wipers the other day when it was raining and went to adjust speed and now they r stoped in middle of my windshield. Any ideas?

This problem can be caused by both a defective wiper motor and a defective wiper speed control module. Both parts are failry expensive so I suggest you have the dealer or a GM savvy shop figure out which is defetive and you can replace the part yourself top save money.

I recently changed my wiper motor in my 2003 Hyandai Accent. Now the windshield wipers will not stop at the bottom. When I turn thw wipers on, it goes donw first then up then back and stops in the middle...

Remove the linkage from the wiper motor. Turn the wipers on then off. This will set the motor in the park position. Move the wipers by hand to there normal off position. Reinstall the linkage onto the wiper motor. The wipers should now park or stop in the correct position.

The wipers work in the auxilarry ignition possition ,but not in the run possition.Where is the wiper motor located?

The motor runs the linkage which moves the wipers, so it is under the wipers. Look through the narrow grill area right in front of the windshield and you will see it or the linkage. I would check the switches before the motor if it is running in AUX position.

How do i get my wipers in the correct spot ?

remove the nuts on the wiper arms ... They may be under a cap ... but are always located at the center of the bottom of the arm...
Turn the wipers on (with arms off) and then turn them off again...
When the wiper transmission has stopped and is at rest ... place the wiper arm on in a possition close to the bottom of the windscreen and lightly tighten the nuts back up...
Test to be sure they are where you want them... being sure they are not resting on the windscreen trim... and tighten and recap the nuts...

2000 Saturn LS, windshield wipers park in the middle of the windshield. How can I fix this?

The wipers are parking in the middle because the timing mechanism is off. Once they start doing this it seems to continue to happen so the 1st suggestion is to replace the wiper motor. If U don't want to spend the $ right now it's a pretty easy fix to reset the timing. Park the wipers & remove the wiper arms. Then remove the plastic cowling that covers the wiper motor & the motor assembly. Turn the wiper assembly over without turning the motor. Remove the nut on the arm of the motor. Repostion the arm pointing away from the closet wiper directly inline with the short arm. reassemble.

My wiper trun on but when i shut them off they stay in the middle of the window

The wiper crank arm that is bolted to the wiper motor needs replaced. Also there is a tab on the wiper motor bracket that gets bent when the arm goes bad. Bend the tab back up so the new arm will contact the tab and the wipers will go down down when they park instead of up.
