If they stop where you turn them off, check the park switch circuit in the wiper motor.

I replaced a wiper motor on a 2003 cavalier. After replacing it. The wiper arms swing down before going up across the windshield.I want to know what do in need to adjust so the wipers work correctly.

The part that is attached to the wiper motor is in the wrong location. Remove the nut or bolt that attached the wiper transmission to the motor and remove the short arm from the wiper motor. Turn the wiper motor on and then off. wait until it stops moving. Set the wiper arms to the correct "home" position. Reattach the wiper transmission arm to the wiper motor.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

Wipers will not shut off and return to correct position

switch is bad there are resistors that control what speed the wipers go. if you go to high there is no resistors for that it is full power. so that control arm will need to be replaced.
