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???

The day after having my car inspected (required yearly by state), the rear windshield wiper stopped mid-swipe leaving my wiper stuck in a vertical position. This was a week ago, but due to starting a new job, I haven't been able to get the problem diagnosed or fixed.
