Try checking the fuse for the wiper blades first if the fuse is good then check the relay for the wiper blades, if the fuse and the relay are both good it is possible that the wiper motor for the blades is bad.

Why wont my mercury sables windshield wipers park right?


Many Ford products had problems with this, it is the wiper motor.
Replacing the motor is the only way to fix it, because the "park" position is built into the motor.
Be blessed.

1997 mercury grand marquis wipers


We have the same problem on our 97 Grand Marquis. We have replaced the wiper blades and the drivers wiper arm with a used one. The problem was not completely solved but it did work better. We are going to replace the arm with a new one and see if that works better.

Trying to find windshield wiper motor. Where is it


remove wiper arm and check splines on wiper motor or splines on wiper arm for damage if damaged replace. Sometimes arms are just installed with a nut and this nut over time becomes loose check tightness.

How do I replace the cabin air filter on a 1997 mercury sable?


It is underneath the black plastic pieces under/below the wipers. There are just a few round fasteners that hold down the passenger side piece that need to be removed to access the filter.
You have to remove the windshield wiper arms, then take off the plastic molding that lies between your windshield. Once that is off (it comes out in two pieces) on the passenger side of the car, under the windshield just behind the firewall there is a plastic rain shield with two screws. Remove the rain shield. The cabin filter is under that rain shield. FYI...every bolt is metric, and be careful when removing the plastic molding-only turn those screws a half turn, they break very easily!

Windshield wipers don't work


Ok, this is a steering column issue. The wiring needs to be replaced. Shouldn't cost much at all. also, the external switch may have issues as well but, i suggest you re wire your steering column to fix this problem.
