The problem a bad ground inside the wiper motor .
To what is called the break witch makes it come to rest fully down when you turn the switch off .
Did you ever notice that if you turn the key off with the wipers on they stop where ever they are on the wind sheild .
Its not really that big of a deal and the wipers will still work you just have to time it when you shout off .
You could also take the motor apart and solider the wire or a new jump wire and it would work again .Or just get a new or used motor its not that hard to replace.
Sounds like the relay or switch is bad. Just find the correct fuse for the wipers(will be marked on inside panel cover) and remove it. There is just the switch, the fuse and wiper relay in that system. So it turns on but not off, but works. So there is power from the switch and the fuse is good or it will not work and the relay lets it turn on but not off. Try putting it on a delay mode, if it does not work more than likey it is the relay. I know it is a hit or miss issue but that is cheaper attempt than replacing the switch assembly.
No relay in the circuit. There is a delay module but if it fails that usually causes the wipers to stop in the middle of travel or only run on high. And the switch is working if you hear noise coming from the motor. The wiper switch is not the same switch as the turn signals but it is near that assembly. I would say if you have power to the wiper motor the motor is probably dead or something happened to the linkage to the arms.
Here are a few other things to check beside the fuse and relay:
Check Wiper Motor - the wiper motor is the driving force of the windshield wiper. Feel the motor and listen to a humming sound. If there is no humming, the motor is the problem. Check if the motor is working properly and see to it that its electrical connections are made properly. If you find that the motor is dead and beyond repair, get it replaced immediately.
Check For Break in Connecting Wires - the connecting wires of the motor sometimes go loose and that may cause the windshield wipers to stop working. Also check the battery plug connection which the motor has. Connecting the loose wires properly or fixing/replacing the plug might solve your problem.
Check Wiper Switch - another wiper assembly part that can malfunction is the wiper switch itself. Check for switch malfunction and if you find that is indeed the problem, get it replaced from a mechanic.
Check for Bent Wiper Arms - bent wiper arms can cause the operation of the wipers to be hampered. If the wiper arms are bent beyond repair, get them replaced immediately.
