1992 Pinnacle Wipers stay on

I pulled the wiper switch which includes the harness. This is a dash mount. This can't be located by rv specialists. I am told by the specialist that there should be a park switch. Does anyone know where this is located?

Can you identify the manufacturer of the wiper motor? For many years the GM style had a park circuit in the motor itself. It wasn't uncommon to see this problem ni GM cars of the late 1980's vintage. At the time you could buy parts for the motor and transmission from the dealers. I doubt there's anything still available so if you do have the GM style motor and that is the problem you may need to replace the entire motor/transmission unit.

Many times this problem was caused by a lack of solid ground to the wiper motor. That's where I would start. Run a new ground wire right to the motor and see if that doesn't fix it.

1992 Pinnacle Wiper

We have 2 motors, one to each wiper, would this still apply?

Yessir. If one ground wire were feeding both motors and the ground connection went south on the other end, that might cause them to do what you describe.
