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.
Sounds like one of two things. Either the circuit board on the wiper motor is bad or the switch on the column is bad. Just to let you know GM had a serious issue with the circuit boards on their wiper motors. Might be covered under a recall you can check with the local dealer.
It sounds like the circuit board to the wiper module is cracked or has bad connection. There was a recall a few years back on certain GM model for this. I know you can get one at Auto Zone and they can give you the step by step instruction to replacing it.
Most of the time, the problem is the connection at the solder joint. Its a easy fix if you have a soldering gun and solder, just solder the break in the board or replace it.
Good luck and hope this helps.
replace the small silver can in the fuse compartment (flasher) then if the canceling lever still stays on after a turn you must remove the steering wheel and replace the canceling cam
both parts are available at an autoparts store
You have two problems. The first is the wipers turn off and stay in the upright position and do not close. The motor is fine. There is a steal 'close' tab that has been bent out of position. You just need to push the steal tab back into position. You can use a chisel or screwdriver to pound it back into the 90 degree position.
The windsheild washer motor probably needs to be replaced
