with wiper on try to wiggle the wiper arm with your hand. if motor is stuck this will sometimes jar it loose. you may need to do this for a minute as the wiper is a delay system. also if you can move the arm thru its sweep then it is just the wiper arm loose if this is it remove cover at base and tighten nut

Sounds like the PARK SWITCH within the WIPER MOTOR is at fault, Only way to beat it is relay the motor. Hope this helps

It sounds like the the circuit board has gone bad and does not know where the base is any more so it will stop at the middle or the windshield. Auto Zone should have a new board if it's replaceable like the GM products. Good luck and hope this helps, In the mean time you can always turn your wipers on and pull the fuse out when it's at the down position so it's not up.
