It's likely the switch is bad or shorted out.

You could also have a short of the supply wire to the wipers.

After looking at the schematic,

another possible problem is the wiper relay is stuck in the on position, regardless of the condition of your switch.

If the wipers are consistent in where they stop the problem may be due to the splined shaft of the drive motor has rotated within wiper linkage attachment. Remove motor/linkage assembly remove linkage from motor and check for stripped splines on the linkage/motor. Willie

Kia sorrento wipers won't stop


I had the wipers won't shut off, or turned on by themselves on my 2005 Kia Sorento. It about drove me nuts. I came across my solution by pressing every button I could find, eventually finding out what the mystery button to the right of the hazard button on the dash was for. (It's to defrost the front wipers by the way) You can investigate further if you'd like but it's not necessary if this works for you.

I simply pressed the button on, waited a moment and turned it back off. It stopped the wipers. They came back on about three more times over next few days and I repeated the process each time. It's been about three weeks since the last time I did it and I haven't had any more problems. This sound crazy or quirky I know and I don't pretend to understand it, but it's working for me. It beats the heck out of paying over $300 dollars plus labour for a new wiper switch . I priced them. Good luck.

My windshield wipers are stuck in the up position. they still work,but when i turn them off they stay up (2005 kia sorento)


Bad wiper motor. there is an internal electrical switch inside the motor.
not shure how it gets confused but I have changed several motors to correct this problem.

Wipers stop straight up when turned off.


Wipers are out of time. Remove the wiper arms while
they are turned off and straight up. Replace them where they should be. This will Retime them.
