    wipers work, but at stop position, end up in vertical position instead of in park, or horizontal position

    My 1990 Mercury Sable failed Inspection today because the blades park in the vertical position. Everything else works fine with them, but when I turn them off and the reach the lowest horizontal position, the blades stutter once and jump into the vertical position.

You will need to replace the wiper motor. Most likely the circuit board is bad. You might check with your local chevy dealer and see if there is a recall on the wiper motor before you buy a new one, even if you are not the original owner the car the recall will still be done free of charge. Some chevy models did have a wiper recall. I hope this helps.

2007 Pontiac g6 wipers stay in upright position


Hey Derek , here is how the wipers park position is suppose to work !
Windshield wiper motor park operation is controlled by the body control module (BCM) using an input from the park switch within the wiper motor assembly. The BCM monitors the windshield wiper motor park switch circuit to determine if the windshield wiper blades are at the bottom of the glass. The circuit will be pulled to ground by the wiper motor park switch while the windshield wiper motor is operating. When the wiper switch is turned to the OFF position while the wiper motor is somewhere in mid-cycle, the BCM will continue to operate the motor until the wipers reach the park position. If the ignition is turned OFF while the wipers are in mid-cycle, the wipers will stop immediately where they are. The BCM will park the wipers the next time the ignition is turned ON.
The wipers will not park when they are commanded ON and OFF with a scan tool. The BCM will park the wipers the next time the wiper switch is turned ON and OFF.
The BCM provides stall protection for the wiper motor by monitoring the park switch. If the park switch does not transition for 3 seconds while the wipers are operating, the BCM will assume that the wiper motor is stalled, and will de-energize the wiper relay until the wiper switch is cycled OFF and ON again.
Check for a voltage signal on the yellow wire at the wiper motor assembly , this is signal to the BCM ! If there is no signal you need to replace the windshield wiper motor assembly ? If there is a signal need to have Tech 2 scan tool hooked up to see if The BCM is the problem ! Relay #39 an #40 are the high an low wiper relays in the under hood fuse block ! Do you have a volt meter ,do you know how to do electrical testing ?

Windshield wipers out of sync 2005 monte carlo


If only one wiper arm is out of sync it means that arm has come loose. To repair it take that arm off and activate the wiper to get it into park position. then re- mount the bad arm in the park position, making sure the nut is tight. Check the splines on the bad arm because they strip easily and sometimes have to be replaced if it does not tighten down

The wipers on my 2002 Buick century work properly except when they are turned off. Instead of returning to the park position they stop vertically in the center of the windshield. How do I correct this?

When I use the wipers they stop in the up possion. Once in a while they return to their propper resting place.


the parking cam, part of the wiper motor on inside is going bad. Models:
2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue
2002 Pontiac Grand Prix
2002 buick century, regal also 2002 chevy impala and monte carlo.
To correct this condition, install a new windshield wiper motor crank arm and a windshield wiper motor bracket service kit.
if this fails replace motor.

How do i time my wiper blades after replacing wiper motor blades stay in vertical position when set on interrmitent


Remove the wiper arms from the drive posts. Turn on your wipers with the engine running and shut the wipers off -- this will put the wiper drive posts in the park position.

Reinstall the wiper arms so the blades are about an inch above the bottom of the windshield.

I have a 2002 Montana and the wiper blades end up in a vertical position when they are turned off. They otherwise work fine. They pause properly in the horizontal position when running in intermittent...


If the wipers end up in the vertical position and they are the HIDE type usually its the park mechanism mounted on top of the wiper motor that the linkage attaches to, there is a small spring loaded lever on the bottom of this device that wears out and fails to activate the PARK position proccess when the wipers are turned off. When the wipers turn off the motor reverses and the lever is meant to catch on a tab and compress the mechanism pulling the wipers to the park position. Only thing I know what to do is replace this mechanism, ($150. new 25. used)

02 audi a4 quattro wipers won't park


If you can move the wiper arms by hand then the 13mm bolt on the motor has worked loose, remove the plastic windscreen trim under the bonnet , close the bonnet , then operate the wiper motor for 1 cycle , switch off , open the bonnet , loosen the 13 mm nut on the wiper motor , push wipers down to the park position , tighten 13mm nut up , close bonnet then check wiper operation , they should now park in the correct position .

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.
