A bad relay switch will cause the windshield wipers to not turn off. Replace the relay switch and the windshield wipers should turn off.

Wiper motors have an internal switch that keeps the wipers running after you turn them off. The switch stays active until the wipers get to the "PARK" position and if the drivers wiper switch is off, then the wiper motor is turned off internally. I suspect the internal switch has failed. Unfortunately the switch cannot be easily replaced. Fortunately, wiper motors are not terribly expensive.

To turn on the wipers, you twist the indicator knobat the tip in a forwards fashion. To switch them off, you do the reverse and twist the tip backwards towards you.

I have the same problem in my caprice, what you need to do is just sit there and switch it to high for a few minutes, then eventually if you keep playing with it it will turn off when you switch it to the far left
