Your 2001 grand prix gt wipers stop in the upright position when turned off what might be the cause remedy?
The "park" switch inside the wiper motor assembly has failed.
Why would the delay wipers stop in the up position but when turned off they park in the down position on a 1997 Chevy Cavalier?
this also is happening to me right now, and 600 dollars later i still have windshield wipers that work perfectly unless in intermittent, in which case they pause upright... Remove the plastic that covers your wiper motor just below the windshield. On the wiper motor there is a small plate held on by screws, remove the plate. You will see two metal tabs, one of which appears bent. Bend it back and reassemble. The problem…
The wiper motor has a switch inside of it. When they are turned off and the wipers go to the down position it trips the switch in the motor that tells the computer they are in the down position. If that switch in the motor is faulty, the wipers are repositioning until the switch is tripped to the off position. THE FIX.... Replace the wiper motor.
The motor shaft and the wipers are'nt connected properly(the timing is off), just disconnect the wipers from the motor. Turn your car on and cycle the motor and it should be back at the home position. Pull your wipers back down and reconnect and all should be fine.Thats if you put in a new wipermotor. If not, maybe the wiper switch is bad.
The windshield wipers on my 2002 Chevy Impala get stuck in the upright position when I turn the wipers off. How do I get it fixed?
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.
