Car window wipers are messed up

My window wipers work fine when I turn it on, but when I turn it off, instead of going to rest position at the bottom of the window, it stops in the middle of the window and just stays there. I've tried holding the wipers down when I turn it off and that works until I turn of the engine of my car. When I start up my car again, the wipers immediately revert to their position in the middle of the window even though the wipers aren't turned on. How can I fix this?

    In the off/resting position they are now up instead of down.

    I started my car and turned on the wipers then they wouldn't turn off so I turned car off. Went to start it again and wouldn't crank over. Battery and fuses are good.

From what I have read, it is the crank arm park tab that has been bent or broken off, sometimes happens when wipers are forced to go over some snow or ice. drivers side wiper, open hood and remove any coverage over the wiper motor, have someone run the wipers so you can see where the tab is supposed to be, if bent,just bend it back to a position where the crank arm comes down and hits it. supposed to work, again,from what I have read.

2004 Envoy - Rear window will not go up. Sensor says rear wiper obstruction. Is there any way to bypass the wiper sensor to get the window up? Thank you!


On some cars by winding down the rear window too far the wiper blades slip over the edge of the glass and hold the glass down when the window is trying to wind it up. Check and adjust the rest position of the wiper arm first. Try not to by pass a sensor as it will cause more problems for you . Instead fix the fault first.

How do you reset the windshield wipers to the start position on a 97 camero? The stop In the middle off the window when turned off.


Pull off the wiper arms when the motor has turned off and the wipers at rest. Realign the arms in the position desired and do a test with a mist of water on the glass. The gear alignment is critical to the way the arm rests when in operation and when at rest.

After replacing the wiper motor and linkage bushings on my Grand Voyager SE, the wiper arms stop in the straight up position when ''at rest''. Help please


Remove the arms,and place them back on where they need to go,do not turn the wipers on,do this as they set now.If the wiper blades when turned on go off the left side of the windshield ,then you will have to remove everything again,and move the wipers down in the rest position,and align everything up to the rest position,with the wipers at rest,and the motor at rest.

Discovery 2009, the passenger side wiper wont work, I think it may just need to be re-fitted into its original position, it seems to be slipping on the ratchet? any idea how to remove and repiar this...


it may be that the wiper arm is worn on the inside of the bottom bushing you will need to replace it, make sure you turn off the wipers before you turn off ignition so the wipers travel to their proper rest spot on windows some just lift off some have a screw in them just replace them in the same rest position as for any special tools you will need to contact a good garage to see if any are required or your local Land Rover Dealer

On my 97 pontiac bonneville my windshield wipers do not go all the way down to where they should rest. i was going to remove them and put them back on at a different position so they would go all the way...


On your wiper switch you have a park position and on your wiper motor the same.It takes a little experience to mess with this problem.
without looking at it I would say your switch is no working allowing the arms to rest in the park position.
