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.

check the fuses and relays
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!
Check fuse then check 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.
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.
by up I'm assuming you mean they don't "tuck" back in like they should... This is most likely a wiper control module (pulse board) that attaches to the wiper motor, with three screws. You see this all the time with GM trucks. The wipers should 'tuck in' for aerodynamics. The part is ~$40 at your local parts store.
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.
Turn the wipers off, pull the wiper arm off, and replace it in the correct down position.
why is it after I hooked up the linkage for my wipers the wipers stay in the upright position after I turn them off.
remove the wipers, turn on wiper switch, turn off switch, reinstall wipers @ bottom position torque nuts enough to secure the arm. turn on switch readjust as needed.
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.
Your Wiper Amplifier Module is bad. It is a dealer part. It is located behind the glove box on the right hand side.
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.
possible faulty relay
Could be rusty connections between the motor and the wipers, but you should probably check the multi function switch on the steering column that you use to turn them on, they do get corroded or worn out often because of the tendency of the interior of the jeep to get damp or wet.
If there is no other mechanical problem the wipers tuck under the hood by pushing the wipers under the hood. Sorry if you already know this, but they have two settings one for winter (which I'm assuming you are talking about) and one for nonwinter time (under the hood position). It will actually snap down into position under the hood.
This happens sometimes. Try pressing the chrom button to release windshield washer fluid. The wipers will wipe the windshield 4-5 times and should recede to their correct resting position on their own.
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
