Question about 2001 Ford Windstar
I have a 2001 ford windstar sel with windshield wipers will not park, just stop in the position they are in with the switch is turned off. I have checked the fuse and relays relays I have checked for power atthe park feed wire (blk/pnk) with key of and wiper switch off...no power. Seems to be the problem!!! I have checked the park feed wire from the wiper motor to the relay for an open and found in it good shape. (used ohm meter) Seems like the only thing left is the Generic Electronic Module. Any thoughts??
Your problem is probably in the wiper transmission itself. There is a switch that tells what position to stop feeding power to the motor. But if that switch isn't working, the rest of the system does not know what to do, nor exactly when! However, if you have a good concept of timing, what you COULD do, is simply turn the wiper switch off the instant they are at the "lowest point" in their sweep cycle ... at a cost of NOTHING!

I would start by testing the motor. Gain access to the motor and make sure the black wire has ground, and either the dark blue/orange wire or black/pink wire has power when the wipers are turned on.
If everything checks out, then replace the motor.

If you have good voltage as well as a good ground to the motor then yes I would say it's the motor that's bad. I hope this helped and good luck.

I have a 1996 Ford Taurus with a similar malfunction the intermittent wiper function is erratic, but the wipers park properly. I'm the original owner & this malfunction was in the car from the factory. I have a regular Ford Dealership manual & came to the conclusion that the Generic Electronic Module located behind the fuse panel is bad (computer glitch in programming) ! Ford Dealers want over $ 300.00 for a brand new module, I haven't checked with my local used auto parts recycler yet, but I know it will be less than the dealer price !
