Question about 2006 Kia Sorento
2006 Kia Sorento, wipers work great but when I turn them off, they stop in the middle of the windshield. No work or replacement has ever been done, just one day started doing this. I can turn them off then get out and push them all the way down and they will stay put. Have tried disconnecting battery and no change.
The wiper motor has a park mode built in. It's one of two possible problems. The park mode is bad and the motor needs to be replaced. Usually this can be identified by the wipers stopping all over the place.
The second is that the linkage off of the motor has moved, and it will park in the same spot all of the time. Here you need to release the motor to linkage nut, and move the arms to where they should be, and retighten.

Just purchased a 2006 Sorento approximately three months ago and the battery has gone dead already. They did not give me a key.

When you put the wipers on, you positioned them incorrectly so now they go where they shouldn't.
To fix this you need to first make note of which one goes over the other and keep them that way.
Next, put a piece of tape on the windshield where you think they normally go and use that as your target when reinstalling them. Your tape target will probably be 6 -8 inches above the base of the windshield. The wipers should be almost level when at rest.
You'll have to position them with the wiper motor off and in the 'park' position, which means that you turn them on, then turn them off (not with the key) and let them go down to the bottom of the windshield. At that point, you can begin repositioning them.
