The windshield wipers on my 1993 FORD Crown Victoria LX are
malfunctioning. When the control switch is turned to OFF, the
wipers do not stow away at the bottom of the windshield. Instead
hesitate for a moment, then park themselves at the top of their
stroke on the windshield.
This occurred during some very cold weather when the wipers
may have been stuck by freezing rain to the windshield.
Is this an electrical or a mechanical problem?
The stalk switch on the steering column seemed to be acting
It appears as if there is something missing--either a polarity
reversal for the motors or some mechanical escapement mechanism--
which will make the wipers reverse direction at the last minute
and go to their normal parked position.
Any advice on how to cure this (inexpensively) will be welcomed.
