Hi,
There are several possible causes, and maybe a fault code scan would help. You did not say whether the intermittent wipe and various speeds work - do they? In the meantime, check that the wiper stalk is in the correct position.
You could also try removing the front wiper relay to see if that stops them - if so get an auto electrician to try a replacement relay before buying it ;-)
and you could try removing the "rear" wiper fuse - yes rear, if your car has rear wipers. Then please let me know if any of these ideas had an effect! Well take it from there.Thanks, D

    My front wipers work properly when I pull the fuse for the back wiper. This is a yearly thing. Every year something else gets replaced. This year it was the rear wiper motor. Last year it was a wiring harness. Another year it was a relay. What is the real fix??

SOURCE: wipers stay on

Hello,my friend's car has also this problem but it solved.
When he turned the wiper on nothing has happened.
Problem was the wiper motor has stucked.We had to took out all the wiper's mechanic(3 screws) and disassemble it.One of the bronze sleeve was very rusty and after that is has been broken.
Now it works perfectly with one sleeve.:-D

Rear window wiper wont turn off on my vw golf tdi 2OO2 MODEL


Hi,
Looks like the problem is in the wiper mechanism switch.
Located in the base of your wiper, wires are connected in that area, one contact point might have fused itself to return contact point. Check on that and let us know.
You could check also the rear wiper switch, the contact inside might have fused with "on" contact point.
Hope that stops that reckless wiper!
Thanks for using Fixya!

VW Golf 2001 Rear Window Wiper stays on.


Back window wiper switches/levers are tricky, especially on German-brand automobiles.
Just make sure that the lever/switch is on 'O' or OFF. I overlooked this once on an Opel Astra, and mistook it for the signal lever. Move the switch to all positions to ensure that there is no damage to the physical contacts or electronic controllers of the wiper.
If the wiper cycles even in off position, the controller or motor will need to be replaced.
