Question about 2005 Volvo XC90
Wipers will not turn off with the ignition on. They wipe exactly four times and stop at 12 oclock and pause for about 45 seconds and wipe exactly four more times and stop at 2 oclock for about 45 seconds and wipe four more times and stop at the park position.Then they start the process over again.
First, check that your battery is good. These cars can have weird problems when the voltage gets low.
Then, you have two relays. The intermittent one and the regular one. Make sure that they are good. If you can swap with known-good ones, that will answer that.
Also make sure you have a good ground to the wiper motor. That can make it act up.
What I would likely gamble on, is that your motor is going out and by replacing the motor, your problems will go away.
You might want to do the free/cheap tests first, because replacing the motor and then STILL having the problem would not be fun. :D

This is the wiper motor failing...But to be safe unplug wiper motor,turn on wiper switch,connect test light to negative side of battery or good solid metal ground and stick probe in connector.if it is not working and the test light is not on then the wiper switch has failed.....and if the test light comes on at connector the wiper motor has failed..Since it works intermittently have an assistant to work the wiper switch and test a number of times to be sure.You can buy a cheap test light that will be good enough to check this at any auto parts store...BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR TEST MAKE SURE TEST LIGHT
HAS GOOD GROUND BY CLAMPING TO NEGATIVE SIDE OF BATTERY AND TOUCH PROBE TO POSITIVE SIDE OF BATTERY TO ENSURE GOOD CONNECTION...LIGHT WILL COME ON.

can be faulty wiper motor or blown wiper control fuse.
you hear any kind of noise when you starter the wiper function. If yes then
fuse is ok, but issue is wiper motor.
no movement at all and no noise then its blown fuse or shorted/loose wiper
