Question about 2002 Chevrolet Impala
I tried moving the blades manually with the switch on. They move with my touch (not locked) and I hear a motor sound. When the switch is off, they lock in a vertical position (will not come back down)
This can happen if the wipers freeze to the windshield and you turn the wipers on. There is a plastic (or sometimes metal) shear pin that is part of the wiper linkage that will break under strain to protect the wiper motor and linkage assemblies. You will need to locate and replace the pin. It will be under the cowling below the wiper arms. It is not easy to access.

The wipers lost their index... Turn the car on, turn the wipers on, shut the car off when the wipers reach their full down position. Turn the wipers off, the. Turn the car back on. This should relearn the wiper index.

SOURCE: windshield wipers stop working
At the base of the wiper arm there is a plastic cap,pop this off ,underneath there is a nut that holds the arm in place ,if it gets loose the post will turn inside the blade.Just turn the wipers off and tighten the nuts with the blade in the parked position.

SOURCE: Windshield wipers not parking
The problem could be a bent parking pall bracket. This is usually caused when you wipe snow from windshield using the wipers instead of brushing off. You need to remove both wipers and the cover from the drivers side. Remove the cover over the wiper motor assembly (held by a plastic button). On the right side of the wiper mechanism is a small tab (part of the wiper bracket). This tab needs to be straight for the wiper park pall to rest against.Carefully hammer this tab straight (or you may have to replace bracket, big job) Then cycle the wiper and you will see the assembly return to park position. Re-install all parts in reverse order.
Hope this works for you.

SOURCE: My windshield wipers quit.
The wiper linkage is either broken, or has become un-attached...You will need to remove the wiper arms and plastic shroud above the linkage to inspect...When re-assembling be sure to have the wipers turned off, and in the down position...when mounting the arms back onto the spindles...Hope this helps.
