Usually it's the switch. Unless someone has rigged it up to come on manually. Possibly someone messing with the radio for power (direct) has run it to the wrong place in your fuse box. (backfeeding)

2013 Ford Explorer wipers won't shut off


Unfortunately, several cars made today are having these problems, and you have found one of them. Very likely you are in the market for a new wiper motor.
Be blessed.

I have a T25 Transporter 1990 ,front wipers won`t


It sounds like the park switch inside the wiper motor has failed or a bad contact. If you can get to the motor, remove the plate/cover and you should see a micro switch, check it for broken wires or clean contacts. If you dont feel comfortable doing this, then take the car to an auto electrician, he should be able to sort it.
Hope this helps

1983 chevy pick up wipers won't turn off


The wipers have a control module in the wiper motor. That is what is wrong. On that model you will have to replace the wiper motor . Good Luck

99 Yukon windshield wipers sometimes won t turn on and other time stop after working


We had the same problem and sometimes they wouldn't turn off. The intermittent wipers were random. We replaced the wiper motor. Be sure to get the motor with two balls on the wiper shaft (one for each wiper arm). If you can't find it, you'll have to change the part out on the new motor. Keep the wiper arms in the same location on removal, or it will jam and you'll have to start over.
