help with wiper motor ghosts

My wiper switch turns the wipers on but they turn off when they feel like it - in any setting, momentary, regular, fast. Got a new switch lever but it doesn't seem to help the problem. Wipers go on as desired but take 1-5min to turn off. ??? so annoying. Sometimes it works as desired but rarely. Any suggestions? I though about putting a kill toggle switch at the base of the steering column but that really is just a band-aid. Motor works great in slow/fast settings.

problem is with the wiper motor. There is a fastener @ the bottom that can cause this. Best plan is to just replace it.

If you are mechanical and curious tear into it. Sounds like the motor drive is working but the shutdown after you turn it off does not work. If it is like mine a park switch is linked mechanically to the back side of a drive gear in the wiper motor gear box. Remove the wiper motor assembly and put it on the healing bench. Open up the gearbox portion and figure out how it works. Almost sounds like the grease is a bit dry in the gearbox portion. You can test it without connecting to the wiper portion by just plugging in the electrical. The large nylon gear and park switch are replaceable in the wiper motor assembly I have.
Keep us posted on the ghost removal.................
