This is a common problem on the Impalas. There is probably a bent tab under the driver side wiper. See this website for more info:

SOURCE: when i turn my wipers off they stop in an upright

There are disk ring switches built into the motor drive unit. When you select for the wipers to stop there is another wire going to the drive motor allowing it to run until one of the ring switches opens, stopping the wiper in the home position. If the switch is broken then it will stop as soon as you select "stop" (like when you turn off the ignition, wipers stop immediately)
I'd say you have to replace motor drive or just time it perfectly to stop at "home". Good luck.

Wipers sticking in upright position on 1999 vw passat


It sounds like they are in the "service position" If memory serves correctly do this to get them out of the service position:

Service position To get into service position:
  • After you turn your car off, tap the wiper stalk down. The wipers will move into the service position.
To get out of service position:
  • To move the wipers back, switch on the ignition and tap the wiper stalk down.

There is a piece in the motor that tells them to go home - so try this
take the entire wiper blade off the car - turn on the motor - and then shut it off - now
put the entire units back on where they should stop
please let me know if this fixes your problem.

2005 impala windshield wiper


the wirpers are connected to a shaft. the shaft is connected to a motor. The shaft must have turned and wipers were stuck and didn't move. So you will need to pull of each wiper arm and reposition with wipers turned off.

Windshield wipers stuck upright when off


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.

Wipers


You have two problems. The first is the wipers turn off and stay in the upright position and do not close. The motor is fine. There is a steal 'close' tab that has been bent out of position. You just need to push the steal tab back into position. You can use a chisel or screwdriver to pound it back into the 90 degree position.

The windsheild washer motor probably needs to be replaced
