1997 gmc sonoma wipers will not turn off just keeps runing
Usually that means the multi-function switch has shorted out ... replace the switch on your steering column

well the good thing is you know the wipers work !! , I would start by seeing if the washer squirters work when using the Wiper lever . and I would also see if it worked on fast speed and slow speeds . If it does you may have a wiper switch that has gone bad ! ,

1. Turn on your wipers and pop your hood. 2. If you hear you wiper motor, then you do not need to check your fuses. 3. If your wiper arms are moving freely, then your linkage from the wiper arms to the motor is disconnected and possibly broken. 4. If the problem is electrical, do the following: 1. Check the fuse, and check for power at the fuse. 2. Check the wiper motor for ground. For a complete circuit, you need power going in and ground coming out. Check electrical connections for corrosion or poor connections. 3. Get a wiring schematic and trace power to the wiper motor starting at the fuse box in the following order: Fuse box wiper switch wiper motor 4. In the rarest of cases a wiper motor or wiper switch is at fault. I do not recommend replacing anything unless you have proof that the part is faulty. (ie. power going into the switch but nothing coming out.)

May want to look at replacing the wiper circuit board.It is located on the firewall adjacent to the wiper motor and has a some what square black cover with 3 torx screws and wireing harness pluged into the side.We had a truck that every time you washed it the wipers would stay on until it dryed out.You can try removing it and spaying it down with contact cleaner just watch the brease on the two contact tips.Well hope this helps.
