Under the bottom of the outside windshield you will see a grate with slots that let you look down inside. One of the arms connected to the wiper motor must have come loose. Might be as simple as a clip keeping the arm on slipped off and then the arm too. There should be screws to remove the grating in view either if you lift the hood and look on the firewall or even on top on the corners of the grating. You can take that off and get into the wiper motor area. Let me know if this helped and ppppplease leave me a good thumbs up for the effort. I need to keep my score up. Thanks, The Raz Shack

this is normally caused by a bad wiper motor or binding of the wiper gears and linkage arms.
check to see if the linkage arms are tight and not loose. also try and lube up the pivot points.
another thing to check is to make sure you have 12 volts to the heater.

This can be a problem with the multifunction stick switch by the column or the motor has a bad ground wire or internal contact.
What happens inside the wiper motor is that a contact point shifts the revolving mechanism into the Park or Rest position. If the contact point fails to work and derail the revolving mechanism, it will never stop.
Sometimes a bad ground wire or the casing will corrode and the contact wire inside the motor will not work.
The stalk switch is another problem. There is just too much going on inside this thing to be dependable. It in effect, it can fail to register your turning off the wiper motor. So it stays on even though it is turned off.
Both of these parts connect to each other. You can get wiring diagrams at Autozone.com by registering your car for free. If you can find the wires on the motor connector, you should be able to tell whether the stalk switch is shutting off by using a voltmeter.
If you can tell the stalk is good, then the only thing left is the wiper motor.
With the wiring diagrams and also fusebox layouts you get from Autozone, you can find the correct fuse to pull on the wiper motor circuit.
This is a temporary solution and sometimes the radio or other things like a domelight are attached to the same fuse.
I hope my solution is helpful.
