I would be looking at replacing the wiper motor....the wiper switch is just that, a switch to tell the wiper motor what to do.....most of the wiring is housed internal of the wiper motor such as the park circuit and the speeds........osunds like an internal fault.....replacement would be advised
The wiper linkage and blades should be in the neutral position, or where they would normally lie when in the "off" position. Hope this helps. Remember to disconnect the battery while replacing electrical components.
You'll want to check the crank arm. It's under a plastic cover on top of the wiper motor and connects to the wiper linkage. When it fails the wipers park in the up position. There is a tab sticking up from the frame that it needs to hit. Make sure this isn't bent. When the crank arm is replaced it needs to be correctly timed. There must be a 4-8mm gap between the tab and crank arm at the innerwipe position.
Does the wiper arms "park" properly when you turn them off or are they different from left to right? In other words, is one sitting higher than the other?
One other thing, I have had a few come in to the shop where the wiper arm was loose where it attached to the spindle. You can check those with a 13mm wrench or socket and make sure they are tight too.
