Screwy Wipers - Stopping half-way during intermittent mode?
I have a problem that has just developed. When I have my wipers on in the delay mode, the wipers stop at the top of there stroke, instead of returning to the bottom of the windshield. It's like the thing has the "park" location screwed up. This only happens in intermittent mode.
On the first swipe, they come up, and stop. Once the delay period is over (which is longer now than it used to be), it swipes down, and then back up and stops at the top again.
If I have the wipers on regular mode and turn the wipers off on the up-stroke, they do return to their proper parked position, but only after a few stutters in the location they stop at during intermittent mode. If I turn them to off on the down-stroke, they stop as they should at the bottom of the windshield.
Where is the delay unit for the wipers, and has anybody ever had this problem before? Any ideas where to look for a fix? Is there a "park" sensor somewhere in the motor unit, or somewhere else that may be sensing the blade position incorrectly? Would REALLY like to get this fixed...
