Wipers not returning where they should...

Has anyone seen this problem before? Unless I time it just right when I turn the wipers off, the wipers will just stop where they are when the switch is turned instead of returning to the bottom of the windshield. IIRC, this usuall means the wiper switch is shot... Does this sound right? Also, are all the the wiper controls located in part of the steering colum/stalk combination stuff? Or is there another module under the dash or something that I should worry about.

Thanks

Don't worry...

...just time it right. (After all, you now own a vintage rotary truck!)

Of course, if it really bugs you, you could start trying to improve matters...

Wipers

The part/s that returns the to park is in the wiper switch on the column and under the hood. Just track the problem down with your multimeter.

If there are no intermittent shorts, etc. ...

...hidden inside any of the wires, (for example), a teensy little dab/squirt of 'Cramoline' or 'Caig' brand "De-ox-it" type professional electronics contact cleaner at each and every connector/switch/etc., might work wonders. It's been a lifesaver for me a good number of times, on many a connection!

The ground might be bad. That usually affects the park function.
