Question about 1999 Mercury Grand Marquis

Wiper blades stop in up position on 1999 Grand Marquis

I have a 1999 Grand Marquis and the wipers work fine until you turn them off. Instead of going back into the down position they go all the way up and stay there. They have worked perfectly fine except they have started doing this about a week ago. All oher functions such as a delay and speed still work normal.

When I turn my windshield off the blades go to the uperward position. How can I correct this


This is usually caused by a bad wiper motor, I would try a new one first. If you still have a problem the only thing left to cause this would be the wiper control module. This is behind the ash tray area in the dash. These only cost around $40 and are easy to replace but rarely cause this problem.

Where is wipers control module located on 1995 gran marquis


This is usually a contact inside the wiper motor. Some are accessible and some require replacing the wiper motor. The inside of the wiper motor jumps into a derailer which breaks the electric contact that keeps the motor turning. Once the motor cycles, it parks in the down position.

The insides of the wiper motor are suppose to coast without power into the Park position.

Wiper speed control for a '97 Mercury Grand Marquis. What causes the wiper to work on high speed only?


Intermittent wiper control stopped working on my 1996 GM last spring. I ended up replacing the wiper motor ($100.00 part). Since I have found it on Amazon for $58 including shipping. It works fine now. Only bad part was all the "stuff" that has to come out (like dead leaves!) to get to the wiper motor. Also make sure you have your wipers in the down position when you replace the motor.
