You first pull the wiper motor fuse located on the drivers side under the dash. This will keep your blades from distracting you while you drive. The part that has to be changed is called the Wiper Switch Assembly. The part number is 35256-SR3-G21 and can be purchased around 65 bucks at your local auto parts store. It would be best to have a repair manual because the (SRS) needs to be disabled. The Haynes Manual gives you step by step instructions with detailed illustrations for a smoother removal and installation.

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.

Why do the windshield-wipers in a 1985 Ford Crown Victoria don't turn off when you try to turn them off?

Wiper motors have an internal switch that keeps the wiper running until it gets to the "park" position. Sometimes the internal switch fails and the wipers keep running, never sensing the park position. When that happens, you'll need to replace the wiper motor.
