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.

Removal & Installation
Always rotate the wiper operating arm in a clockwise motion or damage to the motor could occur.
Here is the picture of the motor....it is the round object in the middle of the picture that looks like a can and has a square block on the end of it.
You have to remove the cowl vent panel....just under the windshield. $64.00 for a new motor.

Testimonial: "Fast and accurate response."
there are two relays for the wiper run park relay and high / low relay they are located in the battery junction box under the hood and they are on the left side middle above the rows of fuses.
let me know if you have any more question.
