CARAVAN WIPER INFO

I have a 96 grand caravan and am having trouble with the wipers not turning off right away when you select the off position or what will happen is that
they will stop in the middle of their cycle instead of stopping in the proper park position. I suspect there is a stop position switch located out under the black plastic insert below the wiper arms. Can some body tell me if that is where the switch is located and one other question. I went to have a look at taking the wiper arm off so that I can then remove this black plastic piece. The problem here is that it looks as though I will need a pully puller to seperate the wiper arm from the wiper motor shaft. Is a pully puller the answer.
Thanks in advance for the info

the down position once the switch or key is turned off. Keep in mind that a faulty BCM or even a multifunction switch could also be the cause. You would have to have a scan tool connected to see if the park switch is working on the motor.

Thanks for the info Glenn, I will look tomorrow and see if I can get the wiper motor out and have a look at the switch. I find lately that if we only get light rain or short periods of heavy rain everything is good but if we are on the highway especially, it must drive the rain down in around where ever this switch is located as that is when it really starts to act up. Speaking of scan tool, I was thinking of getting one for home use. Can you recommend one that I wouldn't have to take a morgage out to buy yet would assist me in minor trouble shooting such as this problem here.

scan tool and the last time I priced it was $2800.00. Don't waste your time pulling the wiper motor because the park switch is built into the motor. you wont see anything if you remove it .
