If you need to reset it, it may have chewed up the small teeth that keeps it in place. You can pry up the arm off of the shaft and then check the teeth. I have taken a small piece of aluminum from a pop can and wedged it in the teeth and arm to make it fit tighter with what teeth were left. Not checking to see that the arms are not frozen stuck before turning on the wipers cause most of this type problem.

My whipers on my Buick century 2002 are stuck up and wont go down?

I had the same problem on my 2000. It seems mine slipped on the studs and would stay in a up position. I simply removed the arms from the studs, ran them a few times so they were properly positioned, and replaced the arms back on in the "home" position.I had the same problem on my 2002 Buick Century and found that it was a broken park tab on the wiper mechanism. We were able to use a small piece of metal to reinforce it.

How do you reset the windshield wipers for a 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue?

There is no "reset" in the wiper motor. If your wipers do not park, it is likely your wiper motor parking contact or cam is broken. Try running the wipers with the key in the "ON" position, then turn the wipers off using their switch while they are up on the windshield. They should park themselves at the bottom. The good news is a wiper motor is pretty cheap at a junkyard, and not too hard to replace.
