There is a switch that indicats to the control module the wipers are down and parked, it is called the park switch, it is part of the wiper motor and in order to fix the issue you will have to replace the entire windshield wiper motor assy.

if your wipers have the delay option, change the wiper motor control module, located just inside the plastic cover on the wiper motor (under hood below windshield).

Windsheild wipers delay wont work properly. turn them on and the wiper just keep going at normal speed with no delay. turn them off and the keep running then stop in the middle of windshield.


The wiper module is probably bad.It is located on the wiper motor many times you can wiggle the wires going to the module and some function is restored temporarily but most likely the module willneed replaced.

Intermittent windshield wipers


It sounds like the circuit board to the wiper module is cracked or has bad connection. There was a recall a few years back on certain GM model for this. I know you can get one at Auto Zone and they can give you the step by step instruction to replacing it.
Most of the time, the problem is the connection at the solder joint. Its a easy fix if you have a soldering gun and solder, just solder the break in the board or replace it.
Good luck and hope this helps.

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.
