Question about 2005 Hyundai Tucson
The motor that drives the wipers has a little transmission on it with plastic gears, one of them is broken, you have to replace the motor with trans , and it will park itself again. You can take it apart and try to fix it , you have to get it out anyway to match it up. Hope this helps.

Im no mechanic but this was an easy fix even for me, lift the hood, unbolt the wipers,pop the black plastic clips(they look like large flat plastic screws) then lift the whole plastic cover out of the way, look down on the drivers side wiper assembly and below that it joins to the motor, on the motor there is a little metal lug that has got bent , when you run the wiper look in and you will see a little spring loaded arm pass by the lug when it goes to the idle poosition, you need to bend the lug back in towards the little arm, not too far or it will sound like it is grinding when the wipers are running.
this lug pusches the wipers back to their home position.

This is a commoon problem with what is called the "Park pawl stop". The tab is most likely bent and needs to be re-aligned, then the wipers need to be re-timed. This re-timing can be a little difficult, although the re-aligning of the tab is failry simple.

I had the same problem in my LW200. As the other poster indicated a new wiper motor will do the trick. This is an easy fix. Remove the wiper arms, pry up the plastic center cap and remove the nuts holding the arms down then pull them off. A soft prying nudge from underneath will help as they are splined shafts. Raise the hood, put a large deep well socket on over the splined shafts and remove the 2 large nuts holding the trim panel on. Pull up and off the long rubber which runs along the front of the trim panel, watch there is a sharp edge underneath. Now you can gently pull off the trim panel, remembering to lift it over the splined shafts. Mechanism is right there, remove 3 screws and unplug wiring. Take wiper motor off the linkage swap with a new one at advance auto, about 100 bucks, reinstall in reverse order. Note there is a stamping on the linkage telling you where the pivot arm should be for the rest or stopped position and if you ignore that your wipers will be out of whack. While you are in there you may want to change the cabin air filter as well.
