There are onlyy three things, check fuses, check the switch by wiggling it or check and make sure the motor is not bound up or the linkage has not come apart under the hood. You caqn try turning them on and then manually lifting on the wiper to see if it will start moving again. May be a weak motor.

My 2006 pt cruiser front wind sheild wipers wont stop going.. how do i stop them?

Sounds like the relay or switch is bad. Just find the correct fuse for the wipers(will be marked on inside panel cover) and remove it. There is just the switch, the fuse and wiper relay in that system. So it turns on but not off, but works. So there is power from the switch and the fuse is good or it will not work and the relay lets it turn on but not off. Try putting it on a delay mode, if it does not work more than likey it is the relay. I know it is a hit or miss issue but that is cheaper attempt than replacing the switch assembly.

Why do my windshield wipers only work on high speed and when turning them off they stop where ever they happen to be, not going all the way down?

could be the motor wiper or the wiper control module first unplug electrical conector at the wiper motor, clean both the elect. connector and the motor connections as well, if this dont fix the problem you will have to change your wiper control module.

When operating vechicle when using rear defroster wind shiel wipers and the fan rpms drop What is the problem

It depends on several factors. The rear defroster draws a huge amount of power from the charging system just like the blower motor does. So if everything is working correctly, it can be a normal thing. The alternator will not make enough power to cover the draw at idle when the other accessories are being used, but should at cruising speeds.

if making wiring noise remove and re conect wiper arms inside as they are prone to poping off if over loaded like when frozen to wind screen they pop the conector rather than burn the motor out ]

Wind shield wipers stop in center of window

Sounds like a linkage (wiper transmission) problem. But, put an external ground wire to the wiper motor first and see if they work then.
Also many wipers have a fastening nut on the wiper arm where it attaches to the stub that goes through the body. These may have loosened and gone out of adjustment. If so, loosen them and re-position arms, then tighten them down.
