    I went to go for a ride turn the car on and the wipers turn on and would not turn off, I tried all the postitions, the low and high speed work, but not the delay, my extended warranty was up 9/13/08 and this happened 9/17/08 and Cadillac would not honor it.

I disconnected the electrical connection to the wiper motor until I can get the new motor to fix it in a few days You won't be able to use your wipers but it beats them randomly turning on every 5 minutes with no way to stop them. Especially when your on the road 3 hours a day. Seems like a problem Cadillac should look into. Pretty "common" problem I am finding out. Ughhhhhh

Why do the lights come on and off after I shut car and lights off in my 1998 dodge van and then the car wont start in the morning?

Well the car wont start in the morning, becuz its draining the batteryfrom the lights coming off and on. But the reason ur lights r coming off and on when the car is turned off is there is a short in the wiring from the headlight switch to the steering wheel iignition. There are several wires that are ran from the ignition switch to various things in the car. Such as windsheild wipers, headlights, turn signals... which is why these things generally work only when ur ignition is engaged. The wires could be pinched which could cause the short, if ur in the habit of raising ur steering wheel up and down alot. Kind of like a pinched nerve. The steering colum is going to need removed to trace and straighten out the wiring to properly fix the short thats causing ur lights to go off and on all the time.

A draw on battery

Have a load test done on the battery first as that amount of power loss indicates a bad cell that is discharging internally.

Wiper motor will not stop running

The wiper motor takes its orders from the wiper switch which is probably faulty. It wont take long to ruin your windshield unless you live where it rains constantly. It you're sure it wont rain you can pull the fuse out until you can get it repaired. Probably wont be cheap as it's also probably on a multi function switch. If you have a friend that knows how to install a toggle switch to turn the power on and off to the wiper motor and money is a problem then that's the way I would go. Under $10 solution as opposed to what will probably several hundred $

Washer comes on when wipers are turned on. Is replacing the switch gonna fix it? 06 cts

Should. It sounds like wiper switch w/delays/squirters, etc has a short in it and it's activating your washer pump in all positions.
