SOURCE: 2006 kia sorento windshield wiper hang up

When you put the wipers on, you positioned them incorrectly so now they go where they shouldn't.
To fix this you need to first make note of which one goes over the other and keep them that way.

Next, put a piece of tape on the windshield where you think they normally go and use that as your target when reinstalling them. Your tape target will probably be 6 -8 inches above the base of the windshield. The wipers should be almost level when at rest.

You'll have to position them with the wiper motor off and in the 'park' position, which means that you turn them on, then turn them off (not with the key) and let them go down to the bottom of the windshield. At that point, you can begin repositioning them.

Good luck!

SOURCE: 2006 sorento wipers wont go down all the way when off

The wiper motor has a park mode built in. It's one of two possible problems. The park mode is bad and the motor needs to be replaced. Usually this can be identified by the wipers stopping all over the place.
The second is that the linkage off of the motor has moved, and it will park in the same spot all of the time. Here you need to release the motor to linkage nut, and move the arms to where they should be, and retighten.

SOURCE: turn off check engine light on 2004 KIA Sorento

If the computer doesn't detect any further issues during it's next several test cycles, the light should turn off. A test cycle may not be performed unless all the conditions it requires are met (been running for a certain period of time, engine temp, etc). On some cases, can take a week or two to turn off. Otherwise you can get an OBD-II scanner and manually turn off the light if you don't want to go to the dealer

Wow, the wiper still goes with the battery disconnected, that's amazing! Just joking ;-) Seriously, it sounds like it could be a short in the switch to control the wiper or a wire has shorted causing the wiper to stay on. Probably, if you replace the switch, the problem will be solved. If you know someone with the same type of car, you could "borrow" their switch and connect it to your car to see it that is the problem. I hope this helps.

If the wipers are consistent in where they stop the problem may be due to the splined shaft of the drive motor has rotated within wiper linkage attachment. Remove motor/linkage assembly remove linkage from motor and check for stripped splines on the linkage/motor. Willie

Kia sorrento wipers won't stop


I had the wipers won't shut off, or turned on by themselves on my 2005 Kia Sorento. It about drove me nuts. I came across my solution by pressing every button I could find, eventually finding out what the mystery button to the right of the hazard button on the dash was for. (It's to defrost the front wipers by the way) You can investigate further if you'd like but it's not necessary if this works for you.

I simply pressed the button on, waited a moment and turned it back off. It stopped the wipers. They came back on about three more times over next few days and I repeated the process each time. It's been about three weeks since the last time I did it and I haven't had any more problems. This sound crazy or quirky I know and I don't pretend to understand it, but it's working for me. It beats the heck out of paying over $300 dollars plus labour for a new wiper switch . I priced them. Good luck.
