It sounds like you are not turning the wipers off by using the wiper-switch, but are instead just turning off the ignition-switch. The result will be as you described. Try FIRST turning off the wipers with the wiper-switch, and THEN turning off the ignition-switch. Wrong answer , the question is when the --wipers are turned off- -they stop sticking straight up . not when the ignition is turned off . Delay wipers have a relay module under the dash and above the brake pedal. It's a black plastic box approx 4"x6"x1" with a connector on the short end. The park relay in that module is defective, but as it's on one circuit board, you have to replace the whole thing. it ran me $75 from Ford/Lincoln.

Why do your windshield wipers stay in the up position when turned off on your 2001 Gran Prix?

If your turning Ignition Key off while they are working, then 99.9% of cars will do that, because it was stopped in cycle mode, and then will continue when key is turned back on. If they are staying up when you turn the switch off on directional lever. Then you most likely have a bad wiper motor, the Reset/Down mode in off cycle is gone. They go, but can also be agrevated by leaving wipers in up position accross windshield during cold weather, freezing rain or snow will make them stick to glass, then when you start vehicle, the Motor tells them Go, But wipers say No! and can ruin wiper motor. Always retract to off position, or fold out away from windshield when parked during bad weather. The wipers on my 02 Grand Prix would work perfectly but when turned off, they would "rest" in the vertical, or up, position. I took the wiper arms off, and the plastic cowling under the windshield. Took the plastic cover off of the motor and saw that the metal tab on the mount was bent. I bent the tab back towards the motor so as the cam spun, it would catch that tab. I wasn't real confident that it would work but it did. I'm glad I didn't waste my money to buy a new motor.

The multi function switch is inside your steering column cover and the hazard button and the turn signal lever stick outside of the steering column cover ( so , turn signals , flash to pass , high beam headlights , windshield wipers - high / low / intermittent settings , windshield squirter button , hazard flashers ) I had mine replaced when 2 of the intermittent wiper positions did not work and I would have to push the windshield washer squirter button 3 times before I would get any washer fluid
