"Hi All: Just wondering if anyone has seen this problem. I have a 98
Crown Vic and the wipers won't park. In fact when I shut them off the
go all the way to the up position. The parking cycle seems to be dead.
The wipers work perfect other than the parking problem.
I removed the cover to reveal the crank and it was stuffed with
acorns. (I have a chipmunk problem in my neighborhood) Maybe they
chewed the wiring?
I tried looking at my service manual and it gives instructions on how
to measure resistance and voltage, but I can not find the wiring
harness that goes to the wiper motor. Ford had a better idea when
they design accesiblity to the wiper motor. Looks like a nightmare and
I may have a mechanic do the work. I'm getting too old for this.
Being that the park switch is in the motor, and the motor stops in the full up
position the park switch is 180 out. The motor is bad. All other functions are
normal. It's not the control module. Even you should have seen that.
