Wiper question

My wipers work great on all speeds and delay feature works as advertised. Problem is I can't get them to go completely off. The stalk on the column works the wipers, hi/lo beams, turn signals, and cruise. The wipers are the only trouble spot. On this one the hi/lo beams can be worked by pulling toward the driver or by squeezing the end of the stalk. Do you guys think the problem is in the stalk or elsewhere? Right now I have to pull the wiper fuse to get them off completely. Any ideas?? By the way I've already tried cleaning the contacts inside with electronic contact cleaner, results are the same.

Sounds like there's a problem within the wiper control board itself with park/shut down circuit. That would require a motor/control replacement---once you tear it all out from the vent area.

To save dollars and headache of replacing parts that could be hard to get(and everything works as should---except turning off), I would tie into the wiper's motor "off" wire in it's wiring loom. Use Multimeter to verify which wire needs to be snipped.

Get a simple "on/off" 20amp toggle switch and run wire(12 or 14ga) to one side of switch and run another wire from other side of switch back to wire you cut. This way you make the same completed circuit, but now it's got a switch to cut power and you're still fused to protect the wiper's circuit. Drill dash for toggle switch.

That sounds like a good idea. That way it's one less thing to deal with down the road. Thank you.

Or, check the ground wire, both ends of it, that ground the wiper motor. If it looses it's ground it'll do the same thing. Doesn't happen a lot, but it does happen...
