The fix is so simple that all it rquires is a screwdriver. flathead.


its quite difficult to explain but i will give it a shot.


the parking cam on the wiper motor transmission is missing the activation lever. you need to remove the wiper arms, the plastic cowl cover, and the plastic wiper transmission cover. than use that flat head screwdriver to bend the activation lever back into place so the parking cam can catch on it.

and do yourself a favor. clear the ice and snow from the cowl of your car next winter and you wont have this problem again.

How do you reset the windshield wipers to the start position on a 97 camero? The stop In the middle off the window when turned off.


Pull off the wiper arms when the motor has turned off and the wipers at rest. Realign the arms in the position desired and do a test with a mist of water on the glass. The gear alignment is critical to the way the arm rests when in operation and when at rest.

My windshield wipers turn on but only go half way and then stop. Then the motor sounds like it is grinding but the wipers won't return to the resting position or won't continue their cycle.


sounds like the gears inside the wiper motor are gone. replace the wiper motor and be sure to check the nylon bushing on the wiper control arms for wear.

Windshield wipers stuck upright when off


This is a commoon problem with what is called the "Park pawl stop". The tab is most likely bent and needs to be re-aligned, then the wipers need to be re-timed. This re-timing can be a little difficult, although the re-aligning of the tab is failry simple.
