    wiper problem! help?!

    my wipers on my 98 formula work just fine but the problem is that when they are of they park in the up position and it looks so stupid. does anyone know an easy way to fix this. i pulled the window cowl off and tried to see the arms and motor but can hardly see anything. even if the wipers are off and i push them down...they come on and go back to park in the up position. anyone ever had this issue?

    I have had that problem with other cars,,,usually thats a wiper motor problem when they just don't park. Something in the circuit board I think. Been a while.

    9 times out of 10, it is the circuit board, that controls the delay, and the positioning of the blade arms when you turn the wipers off.

    I had this problem on a 95 Astro van.

    Do they swipe a normal pattern - in other words, do they stay on the glass or travel too far? If they stay on the glass, then remove the panel below the steering column, turn the ignition switch on and remove the connector for the wiper switch. If they then park - replace the switch, if they still don't park replace the motor.
