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.

My windshield wipers do their own thing. When I turn them off they keep going, when I put them on delay or intermittent they work for a bit but then go on regular speed?? What is going on??? My car is only 5 yrs old???
