Default wipers won`t shut off

I am trying to pin down the reason my wipers keep going even after you shut them off. it doesn`t matter what position you put the switch in, they keep going until they are ready to shut off. Is it the switch, or the wiper motor. Is there a fix or is this a part swap? Thanks

Its probably the switch in the door that is wonky. For now you could pull the fuse out of the fuse panel to stop them until you can get it fixed.

More than likely the limit switch and contacts in the wiper motor itself.
When you close the door switch, the wiper still has power until the arms come to their rest position and the contacts are supposed to open
Contacts are under the plastic cover on top of the motor.

Of course you would.
Checked out the schematic in the FSM lately or just guessing off the top of your head again?
If the switch is faulty why don't they come on when he turns the key on?

If you only drive in the rain, no one will notice.

I just can not wait to hear what a door switch has to do with wipers. Tell me more!

Since he has a '95, his switch is in the turn signal stalk, same as on MY car...not in his nose.
