I had the same problem with my 1999 Sable Wagon. It turned out to be the turn signal/wiper control lever (not sure of exact name). Mine was replaced under warranty, so I'm not sure how much it would cost to fix. I've heard of people taking the wiper control part off the end of the lever and cleaning it up, but I've never tried it since mine was under warranty so I don't know if that would work. Good luck fixing it.
