Problem is in the wiper motor. Inside is a grounding lug that parks the wiper blades when you turn them off. Right now they are just being shutdown by a loss of power, not parked.

You will need to replace the wiper motor. Most likely the circuit board is bad. You might check with your local chevy dealer and see if there is a recall on the wiper motor before you buy a new one, even if you are not the original owner the car the recall will still be done free of charge. Some chevy models did have a wiper recall. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: wipers willnot return to park position

I've fixed this problem before. You have to disconnect the wiper transmission from the wiper motor. Put wipers in off position, unbolt the plate on top of wiper, turn wipers on then off. In the off position see where the wiper transmission is position in relation to where the park position is, remove the top plate from wiper motor and position it so as to be able to reconnect the wiper transmission now in the proper place. Please keep me informed. thanks you

Can the wiper linkage cause the wipers to park vertical. Wipers work fine on all settings. Tried repositioning the wiper arms but it didn't work


normally if the wiper arms park in the wrong place , it is the fitting of the wiper arms on the pivot that is wrong
try pulling the wipers back off the windscreen , run them through a cycle and then switch off normally
that will be the park position in the motor gear box
then remove each arm from the pivot and re- position it about 1" from the bottom of the screen
that will be the parked position for the wiper blades
having done that then again pull the arms back of the screen and cycle as if wiping the screen
switch of and see where the arms now park on the screen
if it is close to where you set them then that is the park position
next run the wipers a cycle and see if at full movement one arm puts the blade over the edge of the screen or hits the edge
switch off and re-position that arm closer to the bottom of the windscreen
it is time consuming but the only way to park wipers properly as there is no master spline to set in the correct position
If they park any where after this exercise ,replace the wiper unit as there is a problem in the contacts in the motor box.

Wiper motor on my 95 Cavalier stops in the vertical position. Is there a way to reset it to stop in the horizontal position?


The park ground position in your wiper motor has failed. Then only way to remedy this problem is to replace the wiper motor as a unit.

How do i time my wiper blades after replacing wiper motor blades stay in vertical position when set on interrmitent


Remove the wiper arms from the drive posts. Turn on your wipers with the engine running and shut the wipers off -- this will put the wiper drive posts in the park position.

Reinstall the wiper arms so the blades are about an inch above the bottom of the windshield.

I have a 2002 Montana and the wiper blades end up in a vertical position when they are turned off. They otherwise work fine. They pause properly in the horizontal position when running in intermittent...


If the wipers end up in the vertical position and they are the HIDE type usually its the park mechanism mounted on top of the wiper motor that the linkage attaches to, there is a small spring loaded lever on the bottom of this device that wears out and fails to activate the PARK position proccess when the wipers are turned off. When the wipers turn off the motor reverses and the lever is meant to catch on a tab and compress the mechanism pulling the wipers to the park position. Only thing I know what to do is replace this mechanism, ($150. new 25. used)

2001 Pontiac montanaThe front wipers park in the up position


This is a common problem with Chevy Venture, Olds Silhouette, and  Pontiac Montana. The mechanical wiper drive and parking cam assembly, if it's not broken, needs adjustment. The spring loaded stop arm should engage the vertical tab on the assembly mounting plate when the wiper motor reverses. See pic.  9a7b0af.jpg
I will upload the instructions to fix this problem, if there is interest.
