Usually this is caused by a defective wiper switch. A salvage yard is a good place to purchase a replacement.

There is a switch inside the wiper motor that identifies the home spot for the wipers. If you have intermittent wipers there is also a controller for that. Either can give you problems but more likely the wiper motor switch. The wiper motor switch usually is not a separate part (comes with wiper motor assy.)

Most likely you will need to replace the wiper motor. If you can hear the motor when you turn the wipers on, then you will need to replace the wiper transmission.

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.

The shaft from the motor to the wiper actuating arms is possibly stripped or disconnected. You will need to trace the wipers back to the wiper motor to find the problem. As mentioned follow the linkages back to the motor as they sometimes pop out of their cups.
