first remove wiper arms from vehicle next with ignition on, turn wipers on then off. the wiper motor will stop at the down position. replace wiper arms onto shaft ,in the correct down position where you want them. now with ignition on, try wipers again,to check if in the stop position you want them.
Turn the wipers off, pull the wiper arm off, and replace it in the correct down position.
I would suspect the wiper switch is defective. Replace it. Salvage yard is a good source for this part. In the interim, pull the fuse to stop the wipers when they are in the down position.
possible faulty relay
The wiper motor has a switch inside of it. When they are turned off and the wipers go to the down position it trips the switch in the motor that tells the computer they are in the down position. If that switch in the motor is faulty, the wipers are repositioning until the switch is tripped to the off position. THE FIX.... Replace the wiper motor.
The windshield wipers are not automatic... the lever that controls the wipers have three positions and you will have to pull the lever down to the off position. The position below off is for mist. If you pull the lever to that position and let it go, the lever will go back to the off position.

Wiper motor cogs can wear down and fail to leave the wipers in the lowest position. If the wipers had encountered some resistance they can also slip. It could just be a simple fix.
You must remove the arm of the wiper and move it down
There are two positions for the wipers on an ES330, winter and summer position. The summer position is down under the hood, and the winter position is where I imagine they are now. To switch between the two, just requires a push down to summer position, or a tug up to winter position. The idea between the two positions is that in winter, with snow on the car, the wipers won't get stuck underneath the hood, but during the summer, when that isn't a concern, they can be tucked out of the way for a cleaner look.
when u turn wipers off they stay at up position. while in up position remove wiper arms from vehicle then place wiper arms at down position and renistall on wiper motor shaft. that should fix the problem

Had that problem 02.25.09 & fixed the problem. On the firewall you will find a plastic compartment which houses the motor and arm assembly. The cover is plastic & has three snap connectors. Mine was FULL of dirt & leaves & other junk! After cleaning out all the junk not suppoed to be there, my wipers now park in the down position as they are supposed to. I did spray a little WD40 on the moving parts as well.
