It sounds as though the wiper arm that controls the wipers is attached backwards. I would call a mechanic and have the wiper motor taken off and put back on.

The wiper park arm on these cars are prone to will probably need a new one.Its attached directly to the wiper motor.If you are mechanically inclined you could probably change it yourself.You need to remove the wiper motor/wiper transmission from the car.the park arm is held onto the motor with one bolt on a splined shaft,they are difficult to syncronize correctly so make sure when you remove the old arm you note its position so you can line the new one up correctly

Why would the delay wipers stop in the up position but when turned off they park in the down position on a 1997 Chevy Cavalier?

this also is happening to me right now, and 600 dollars later i still have windshield wipers that work perfectly unless in intermittent, in which case they pause upright... Remove the plastic that covers your wiper motor just below the windshield. On the wiper motor there is a small plate held on by screws, remove the plate. You will see two metal tabs, one of which appears bent. Bend it back and reassemble. The problem usually occurs when the wipers are held in place, by ice for instance, and the switch is turned on.

Why do the windshield wipers go on and off 1996 Dodge Grand Caravan?

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.

Why do your windshield wipers work if you push the lever down but not when you turn on?

If the windshield wipers work when pushing the lever down but not when they are turned on all the time, the problem could be in the wiper motor relay switch. There are two different relay switches for the windshield wipers, so that if the one fails a person can still clear the windshield manually.

How do you best defrost a 1999 Plymouth Breeze in the mornings in winter so that the windshield defrosts on the outside and doesn't fog up on the inside?

Pour warm/hot water on the windows. It works every time! If the defroster and heating units are working correctly I don't understand why the inside windshield would still be fogged up. I have a 2000 Plymouth Breeze and the owners manual says when using the defroster be sure the the vent control knob is turned to outside air position. Hopefully this will work. NEVER!!! EVER!!! EVEEEEERRRRR!!!!!! pour hot water on your cold windshield! The temperature change WILL pop your windshield.

1st position- feet are turned out (toes pointing outward) and heels are together. 2nd position- same as first position but the heels are not touching, they are slightly more than hip width apart. 3rd position- (not commonly used in ballet, but still a position) feet are turned out and the heel of one foot is in front of the other and is touching the middle of the side of that foot. 4th position- feet are turned out and one foot is about a 6 inches to 1foot in front of the other foot. 5th position- same as fourth, but the feet are touching, heel to toe 6th position- (not commonlyl used in ballet) feet are together, not turned out.
