It's the control module, yours is built into the wiper motor. it will steadily get worst. you have to replace the whole unit. not a hard job. If you need instructions on how to replace it, let me know.

Wiper timing switch


Susan, inside the wiper motor is a parking peg which controls the position of wiper blades when off, It is possible the peg is damaged or broken. The wiper motor would have to be replaced in this case. You can find a used one at the auto wreckers, just make sure the plug is the same as yours, as they may be different from one year to another.Have a good Tech. check wipers, diagnose and estimate repair.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, 1 st link gives procedure to change wiper motor. Good luck

When i turn my wipers off they stop in an upright position the wipers work but when off they wont go to home position


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:

2003 Chevrolet Venture rear wiper blade does not work and is stuck in an upright position. Turn it on - nothing. Push the blade down to correct position it eventually ends up back in upright position. Is...


I went to Jiffy Lube, and they did something free that made mine work again. Granted I rarely use it anyway(I'm in the desert), but so far, so good. No idea what they did, but it can't have been very difficult.

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.

I cant figure out how to change my windshield wiper blades on 2001 ford ranger


How to Replace Wiper Blades Guide (Typical):
Potential tools needed to replace wiper blades:
  • Flat blade screwdriver (small)
  • Small nosed pliers
  • Latex or vinyl gloves
  • Safety goggles
To replace wiper blades theactual action of replacing the blade is no big deal, it's the locationof the blade down below the hood that can make it difficult though.Sometimes it helps to open the hood to gain access to the wiper blades.Other times it is helpful if the wiper blade is somewhere in the motionline of wiper action. The trick is to get the wiper to stop somewherein the wiper arc. Turn the wipers to the on position and allow thewipers to start, and then shut the key off when the wiper has arrivedin a desirable position on the windshield. To replace your wiper bladesplease follow the step by step instruction below. Also, watch the How to replace wiper blades video below to gain additional information. The method in which the wiper blades are attached will vary slightly.
  • Step 1: With the hood closed, turn the wiperson, when the wipers are in the middle of their arc turn the key to theoff position. (Note: if this can't be done because of wiper conditionand you want to avoid scratching the windshield please open your hoodto gain access)
  • Step 2: Locate the mounting clips at the top pivot on the wiper blade
  • Step 3: Release the clip and remove the wiper arm
  • Step 4: Match the size of the old blade against the new blade to ensure proper fit and operation
  • Step 5: Reinstall the new wiper blade and recheck wiper operation

Common Problems:
  • Make sure the wiper blades are the same size as the original blades.
  • When replacing wiper blades not getting the blade onthe mounting pin completely allowing the wiper arm to become dislodgedand possibly causing damage to the windshield.
  • Using wiper blades after the blade has failed permanently damaging the windshield by craving scratches in the wiper arc.
  • Wiper blade can create a chattering noise when theblade is not properly balanced allowing the blade to "flop" back andforth as the wiper direction changes.

I hope help you with this (remember rated this help) Good luck.

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.
