A bad pulse board or window wiper motor can cause your wipers to stay in the "up" position.
Could be for many different reasons. Maybe the sensor for the normal position is defective. The wipers might need a position adjustment, usually can be done by a flat head screw driver.
The car wipers should not stay up but return to their original position. The wipers will stay up if the wiper motor, the wiper controller and the wiper linkage are faulty.
replace the wiper motor
The motor shaft and the wipers are'nt connected properly(the timing is off), just disconnect the wipers from the motor. Turn your car on and cycle the motor and it should be back at the home position. Pull your wipers back down and reconnect and all should be fine.Thats if you put in a new wipermotor. If not, maybe the wiper switch is bad.

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.
There is a way to reset the "breakaway swicth" on newer GM wiper motors Go to a qualified GM dealer mechanic and pay. Then stop trying to wipe ice, froxen wipers, and too much snow with your wipers. Use a brush first!
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.
