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.

Remove the wiper arm from the base. Some use a screw, and or, are just pressed on to the Knurled base stud. You can pry it off by lifting up with a flat bladed screwdriver. Make sure that the wipers were turned to the off position, when the engine was turned off. Then with the arm removed, reposition the arm, so that the blade is again resting on the bottom of the windshield, and press the arm back onto the knurled stud. replace screw (if any), and your back in business, with the wipers in the right position, when shut down.

the park tab is bent. it is a thick piece of metal that must be bent back slightly toward the wiper motor with a hammer or plyers. I assume this issue started when there was snow/ice on the windshield?
I used to have this problem. The wipers would sweep at odd intervals in intermittent mode and when I turned the wipers off they would not go back in to the 'park' position (they would stop where I turned the switch off). The wiper motor has an issue with the brushes and contact assembly. Oil from the bearing coats the surface of the slip ring and causes intermittent operation. I removed the motor assy from my '96 caravan and cleaned the slip ring and brush with rubbing alcohol. The non-stop operation stopped as well as the 'ghost sweep' operation when in intermittent mode.
