The cost of your part retail and NOT dealer (dealers usually mark WAY UP) is about $195 you can see one here.

The issue is that the wipers are controlled on the turn signal column, etc. So whole part has to be replaced. Dealer labor rates run about $85 per hour and the book says this is less than 2 hour job if done right. Be careful if you want to do it yourself as you will be working with the electrical in the steering column and the airbag is located in that area. Ive seen accidental activations by shorting out wiring.

2002 pontiac grand prix. windshield wipers stop straight up on windshield when turned off.

If you have just changed the wiper arms, they may not have been reinstalled correctly.....hoever if it has just started happening,,,,,???

unfortunately this is a wiper motor fault....not the switch.......inside the motor is a PARK function.....this is where the wipers will stop after doing a swipe across the windscreen and the switch is turned off.........this park function is a section inside the motor that cannot be removed and replaced internally, and it would cost more than just a replacement wiper motor

Good luck and i hope this helps...

Windshield wipers don't work, fuses are ok but wipers will not come on. Check engine light is on.

Check Engine light and Wipers are not interconnected. For Check Engine light, there may be some sensor signal problem.

For wipers, if the fuses are good, then you have to look out burnout wiper motor. Check for the multi-function switch to operate the wipers may lost its contact points or any wiring cut.

Turn signals turn on windshield wipers

If your turn signal is multifunctioning (dimmer switch, cruise control, wipers, etc.) then it's probably a faulty switch. Takes about 20 minutes to replace and costs around $60.
