2001 Rodeo Wiper Problems

First problem with a '01 LSE Rodeo, V6, auto., since new.
First notch on wiper stalk is for intermittent and it lets the wiper start about half an inch, the stops, doesn't matte where the adjustable ring is
set. 2 other speed work fine........except the wipers when turned off will stop, but will not return to the down position.....just stop where they happen to be at the moment.
Any ideas where to start?
Thanks

Sounds like the controller in the wiper motor has gone bad. Same as with the GM style motors. There should be a cover plate on the motor with three screws. After taking off the wires to the motor it should roll out. If it is like the GM modles that I have repaired it is just a easy plug in replacement unit.
