More than likely the problem is in the wiper motor. Inside the motor they have bump stops (for lack of a simpler word) that tell the wiper arms were to park. I have seen these ruined by hitting the curb to hard, any sudden jar to the system or even ice. When your wipers are on delay do they park in the right spot between wipes? I'm guessing likely not
replace the wiper motor
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.
I've got a better question, why is this question in the Chevy venture forum ?
why is it after I hooked up the linkage for my wipers the wipers stay in the upright position after I turn them off.
Turn the wipers off, pull the wiper arm off, and replace it in the correct down position.
There is a problem with the parking linkage. TAke it to a garage.
first remove wiper arms from vehicle next with ignition on, turn wipers on then off. the wiper motor will stop at the down position. replace wiper arms onto shaft ,in the correct down position where you want them. now with ignition on, try wipers again,to check if in the stop position you want them.

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 wiper motor bracket has a tab that can bend causing the wipers to park vertical. Either attempt to bend the tab back, or replace the wiper motor bracket itself.
If you remove the wiper motor cap you will see where the arm connects to the motor. If you spray electrical lube or white lithium grease on and under the arm and turn them on and off a few times so that the grease works itself in they will stop sticking ad rest where they are supposed to when in the off position.
Normally. the pack of the wipers that you buy have tha instruction on how-to replace the wipers
Replace the windshield wipers.
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.
Replacing windshield wipers is a part of maintaining a vehicle. To replace the, a person removes the old wipers in the manner needed for the type of device holding them, then put a set of new wipers.
Windshield wipers usually last a number of years, with normal wear. You can tell it is time to replace a wiper if you get streaks, or areas not covered effectively by the wipers.
A bad pulse board or window wiper motor can cause your wipers to stay in the "up" position.
I would suspect the wiper switch is defective. Replace it. Salvage yard is a good source for this part. In the interim, pull the fuse to stop the wipers when they are in the down position.
The "park" switch inside the wiper motor assembly has failed.
The windshield wipers are not automatic... the lever that controls the wipers have three positions and you will have to pull the lever down to the off position. The position below off is for mist. If you pull the lever to that position and let it go, the lever will go back to the off position.
you will need to replace the wiper motor. there is a SET OF CONTACTS IN THE ASSEMBLY THAT STAYS TOGETHER TIL IN THE STORE POSITION[BOTTOM OF WINDSHIELD]. THIS IS EITHER BROKEN OR BURNT OFF, THUS DISABLING BOTH ACTIONS
