Apparently, something inside the wiper motor spun and now it thinks the down position is the up position.

a new wiper motor is my only suggestion since the sensors/controls in these motors arent user serviceable.

Good luck and be careful!

Make sure wiper arms are tight they are on a spline also where the wiper arm transmissin conects to the wiper motor therw is a nut that holds a z shaped bracket that losens up and oblongs the rectangular slot so the wipers stop with the least resistance.

My buick regal 1998 wipers stay upright when the car is turned off ,how can i fix it?


You need to replace the crank arm that is attached to the wiper motor. Then bend the tab back up on the wiper motor bracket that got bent when the crank arm went bad. The crank arm catches the tab when you shut the wipers off so they back up and go down to the park position.

Windshield wipers go to vertical position when turned off


the bolts holding the wipers down are lose I think then they have just made there own position, if there has been ice or snow on the window thios is the most likely thing, the wiper arms at the very bottom have round caps covering the nuts pop them off and reset the wipers to the off position, be careful not to damage the window so leave them lifted up until you find the correct place for them.

When wipers are turned off they park in vertical on my 2002 Buick Regal. It started after I had to clean a bunch of snow off my windshield. Did I bump something with my snow brush?


This is most likely the result of a bent park tab on the wiper motor bracket. To repair this install a new wiper motor crank arm (#12494832) and a wiper motor bracket service kit (#88958149). This is a common problem among many 2002 Buick Regals and Centurys.

1998 buick regal winsheild wipers will not sit in theoff position wipe winshield one last time comes back up and stops in middle of windshield


Does the wiper still make noise like it is trying to go? If so open the cap where is attached and tighten the nut on the wiper. If does not make noise you will need a wiper motor.
