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

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.

Why would the windshield wipers work but stay in the up position when turned off on a 1994 camaro?

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.

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.
