Wipers Not returning to resting place

So I left my wipers in the on position when I turned car off. When I went to start it in the morning the snow was on my windshield and the wipers started to go. I immediately turned them off, brushed snow off and then turned wipers on again. They still move fine, but they do not return to their resting spot below. They stop vertically at the sides of the window.

With ya'lls perty white heavy snow,it made your wipers get unaligned,you will have to remove and reset.It's not good to remove snow from wipers when windshield is loaded,get a scraper or blower and go at it.Wish we got snow.

SOURCE: whindshield wipers stuck in a vertical position

This is an easy fix. Likely ice got on your windshield and froze your wipers to the glass then when turned on moved out of position. Take the cover off the base of the wipers and loosen the bolts. Put them down all the way and tighten. When wipers are turned on when frozen to glass the gears want to move but cant and loosens at the base. Please let me know if this does not help and will look into it further but this is probably it. Thanks

You will need to find where in the linkage the problem is. I would start taking it apart to see what is and what isn't working correctly. Autozone website has free repair manuals available online.

My windsheild wipers stop in the up position on the delay setting but park all the way down when turned off. How do I fix this


You will need to diagnose this with a multi meter....on dark green terminal d at the wiper pulse board, with the wipers on any delay position, you should be reading .0005 Amps and 12 Volts and at the same time on the delay position one click below low(the fastest delay speed) you should be reading .0003Amps and 12V on terminal E gray wire, The purple wire (terminal C) should have 12V on high speed only. The yellow wire (terminal B) should have 12V when the key is on and the black wire (terminal A) should always be grounded....check all of that and we should be able to find your problem.
The Amperage should change on terminal E (the gray wire) with each position on the switch but the change will be very small. i.e. the first speed (longest delay) will read .000017 A, the second setting .00004 A and so on. Check that and let me know...(by the way, amps are checked in series with the connector so unplug it, place one probe in the connector and the other in the motor plug terminal. )

How do you reset the windshield wipers to the start position on a 97 camero? The stop In the middle off the window when turned off.


Pull off the wiper arms when the motor has turned off and the wipers at rest. Realign the arms in the position desired and do a test with a mist of water on the glass. The gear alignment is critical to the way the arm rests when in operation and when at rest.

on most cars there is a parking circuit within the motor mechanism which returns the arms to the rest position after the inside wiper switch is turned off. so there is always some power going to the wiper motor. again on most cars the problem you describe is generally a defect in that circuit. however on some cars this circuit is in an external box attached to the wiper motor. so you need to find out if that circuit is contained within the SaaB wiper motor or is external. if there are any dealers left you could call one and ask at their service desk. if it is internal then you are going to need a new wiper motor.

After replacing the wiper motor and linkage bushings on my Grand Voyager SE, the wiper arms stop in the straight up position when ''at rest''. Help please


Remove the arms,and place them back on where they need to go,do not turn the wipers on,do this as they set now.If the wiper blades when turned on go off the left side of the windshield ,then you will have to remove everything again,and move the wipers down in the rest position,and align everything up to the rest position,with the wipers at rest,and the motor at rest.

Windshield wipers not parking


The problem could be a bent parking pall bracket. This is usually caused when you wipe snow from windshield using the wipers instead of brushing off. You need to remove both wipers and the cover from the drivers side. Remove the cover over the wiper motor assembly (held by a plastic button). On the right side of the wiper mechanism is a small tab (part of the wiper bracket). This tab needs to be straight for the wiper park pall to rest against.Carefully hammer this tab straight (or you may have to replace bracket, big job) Then cycle the wiper and you will see the assembly return to park position. Re-install all parts in reverse order.
Hope this works for you.
