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.

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.

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

you may of blown a fuse- this can happen if when you jumped it you had the wires backwards - it causes a voltage spike and can blow fuses
