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 failure.you 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
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.
1997 gran prix wipe stay in upright possission when shut how to fix
The "park" switch inside the wiper motor assembly has failed.
I have a 2004 and the same problem, did you ever find out why? Thanks Jeff
It means you have turned the Traction Control off.
The steering and ignition will become locked on a 97 Chevy Cavalier if the key is not inserted into the ignition and turned. This helps to prevent theft.
Its position will no longer be the same.
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.
5 positions... the only position that is not turned out is parallel
Inverted position means the object was turned inside out or upside down.
