Why would the windshield wipers stay on in a 1992 Ford Econoline van?
Most likely it's the motor assembly. There is an internal switch that keeps the motor running until the wiper blades are in the "park" position. If the internal switch fails, the wiper will continue to run or will turn off wherever the blades are when you turn off the wipers. Either can happen when the wiper internal switch fails.

Why do the wipers stay up during an intermittent cycle?
The "park" signal on the wiper motor is off. The wipers should stay off their cradles about an inch or so. If the ignition key is turned off during an intermittent wipe, the blades may stay at some position on the windshield. They'll return as soon as the next cycle comes up after the ignition is turned on. If they do not behave this way, you likely have a bad wiper motor assembly, which has the control circuit that parks the blades.

Why don't the windshield wipers in a 1985 Mercury Grand Marquis turn off?
Windshield wiper motors have an internal switch that allows a wiper motor to stay running long enough to keep the wipers moving until they reach the "park" position. Once the wiper gets to the park position, the wiper motor is shut off. The internal switch often fails and either the motor will shut off immediately, wherever it is or it will keep running. It sure seems that you need a new wiper motor.

How do you replace front wiper on previa?
turn the wiper on and cut the ignition power once the arm is in the 12 O'clock position for easier access to the wiper. Disconnect rubber washer fluid hose from wiper. Lift arm off of the windshield, and notice where wiper connects to the arm, there's a small plastic locking lever. Squeeze to release, then remove wiper. may take some wiggling back and forth till it comes off. Once off, you can either replace the wiper refills, or replace the entire wiper blades with new ones. Note: the oem wiper blades have hoses on them which washer fluid flows through. So if you go with aftermarket blades, you will lose your wiper washer feature, and fluid will squirt everywhere unless you cap off the rubber hoses.

What Everybody Ought to Know About Wiper Blades?
Do your wiper blades clear your windshield completely? Have you had them checked recently? When's the last time you checked your wiper fluid? If you answered no' or I don't know' to any of those questions you may need a quick refresher on wiper blades. Learn everything you need to knowbefore the next rain storm. First things first. Wiper blades are not an accessorythey are a safety feature. Caring for your wiper blades is just as important as maintaining your breaks. You should regularly inspect your wiper blades and ensure they don't produce streaks on your window. Occasionally use either mild dish detergent or windshield washer fluid on a damp sponge and clean dirt and debris off the rubber blades and also from the windshield where the wipers rest. Don't try to save money on your wiper blades. Invest in your safety. When one blade needs replacement you should also replace the other one. Make certain you are purchasing the correct sized wiper blades for your vehicle. Check your owner's manual, measure the blades, or inquire at your local auto-parts store. On some vehicles, one blade is shorter than the other, so measure both wiper blades. Measure your rear wiper if you have one. If you want to extend the life of your wiper blades, try not to use them for heavy duty cleaning. If your windshield is covered with heavy snow and ice, clean it off manually instead of destroying your wiper blades. Another tip is to always use your windshield washer fluid in conjunction with your wipers. Using your wiper blades on dry glass causes the rubber to wear faster than normal. With proper maintenance, your wiper blades should protect you for about eight to nine months. After that time you should inspect them regularly to make sure they're working properly. If you don't feel comfortable replacing your own wiper blades you can usually go to a local mechanic or auto parts store and get them replaced for a nominal fee.

Turn the wiper on and cut the ignition power once the arm is in the 12 O'clock position (straight up and down) for easier access to the wiper. Disconnect rubber washer fluid hose from wiper. Lift arm off of the windshield, and notice where wiper connects to the arm, there's a small plastic locking lever. Squeeze to release, then remove wiper. may take some wiggling back and forth till it comes off. Once off, you can either replace the wiper refills, or replace the entire wiper blades with new ones. Note: the oem wiper blades have hoses on them which washer fluid flows through and squirts onto the windshield. So if you go with aftermarket blades, you will lose your wiper washer feature, and fluid will squirt everywhere unless you cap off the rubber hoses.
