All these systems are controlled by the GEM, that is the Generic Electronic Module, have Kragen run a quick test and see if the system has codes, but most likely the Module is defective, it is located on top of the fuse panel to the left of the steering column. I have 30 years as a Ford tech so I am pretty darn sure of this diagnose.

hi the contacts in the switch would appear to be faulty if you can get to the switch try spraying the switch with wd40 or simular as if you can spray the contacts it may clean them if you want abit more positive diagnostic while wipers are working disconnect the wires from the switch when they won,t turn off if they continue to work check out the relay yates210456

If your car is under 36000 miles take it to your dealer and have it fixed under your warrenty. All of your interior electrical systems are controled by computors and sometime not a simple repair ! The dealer has the tools to monitor different switch states to aid in isolating the problem. Just guessing if its a switch or a computor or a wiring issue can get very costly.

replacing the front wiper motor on the early L series is not difficult.
search around in fixya and you will find my instructions somewhere
at least twice. do not buy a replacement wiper motor from saturn, they are much cheaper through advance or autozone.
before you begin the repair, make sure your wiper switch is off and note the
wipers off position of the crank arm as stamped onto the wiper mount. this will make sense after you have the assembly out of the car and are replacing the wiper motor. if you ignore that mark then the wipers will be in the wrong position all the time.

linkage popped off. Happened to my 2002 in an ice storm. you have to take off the cowl, and hopefully nothing is broken. cowl is fairly easy to remove
