There are two relays. One is called a wiper HI/LO relay, the other is the wiper park/run relay. They are in the engine compartment fuse panel. If you are looking at the fuse panel with the fuses toward you, and the relays away from you, the relays are two of the small ones located at the top of the box. The two relays you are interested in are the top left and the third one down on the left. All you do is unplug them by pulling them out. You may have to use a pair of pliers. They are controled by a computer module called a GEM module wfhich is located in the middle of the dash inside the vehicle.

Does the windshield wiper switch on a 1998 Chrysler town and country contain the delay mechanism or is it a separate unit?

I'm figuring that this is the same as my 1999 town and country, and I just replaced the wiper switch.. It was easy, and it cost 76.00, and it also had NO effect on the operation of the delay in the wipers. Incidentally, I was trying to fix the delay - What my vehicle does is the delay will work about 4 times, then the wipers "jump" slightly, and the delay no longer works. you have to cycle the wiper switch on and off to get them to go again. Good luck!

Do you need to change the wind shield wipers if you turn them on and they wont stop unless you turn off the car even when put on delay?

The problem is in the on/off/delay switch. Its very common for this to happen. If you are mechanically minded, you can fix it your self. Usually where the switch rotates and makes contact to work the delay either gets dusty and no contact is made or the plastic body breaks off inside and the inner part just rotates with the outer part and the contact is never lost, so they stay on all the time. If this is an older car, just run a toggle switch to the dash from the wire that feeds the windshield motor. This will give you on or off options, no delay. If not mechanically capable, take it to a garage and they should be able to fix it.
