This reply probably too late but -
> Is this a wiper motor problem?
The motor may be OK but the parking switch has likely failed. It should normally supply power until they reach their parking spot unless the main operator switch is still on and this probably controls a relay that may be faulty.
If you have had the problem corrected, you might post the problem found back here as a comment to aid others.

This has happened a couple of times on my 1999 Pontiac Montana. Here's what I did to fix. Open the hood. Remove the shield over the the wiper cam mechanism on the passengers side. This is easy to access. Road salts and other dust and dirt gets in there and causes the sticking problem. Spray WD-40 in between the parts. Get in there with that little red spray straw and saturate it good, flush junk out. Get in the car and try the wipers. If I remember, you might have to manually place that little knob or lever on top of the cam in the opposite position to get it to resync, but try it first. Be sure the wipers are off when you're spraying the WD-40 so you don't injur your hands. I've had to do this twice and it worked both times.

suspect a shortcircuit in the stalk switch.
1has moisture or rain got into the switch? see if problem goes after a few days
2. use WD40 or contact cleaner into the part of the switch where the cables connect to the stalk you may have to open up the steering column or possible with thin straw nozzle supplied with the can.
3. switch is defective and needs to be replaced.
