wiper problem on 2001 Honda CR-V

Have 2001 crv---intermittent wiper function does not work.. Got a used one--now on ALL functions the wipers park at 1/3 the way up the windshield. Both motor & wipers were in park position when removed. Is it a relay or another part, or the motor still no good?

Try this in THIS order!! Turn key on and wipers on, now turn wipers off and let them stop, then turn key off. Loosen the nuts on both wiper ARMS at the base, adjust them to the parked position. Tighten both nuts back up. Now check wiper operation, post results so we know if it's ok! (Or not)

On certain models a faulty windshield wiper motor can cause the wipers not to turn off or not park properly. The wiper motor needs to be replaced to address this issue.

why can't you answer this question?
in the 1/3 up the window position in all settings. BUT--you can easily manually push down down to parked position. This is a used replacement motor. Could it also be defective?
