Wipers work on high only and do not shut off
they stop when key is turned off and go to park position when key is turned back on

What kind of rig do you have? Year, make, model, etc. Gotta make sure you're asking in the correct forum.

Sounds like a short to power somewhere. I would test the multifunction switch for proper continuity in each position

He may have a truck so old it doesn't have a multifunction switch.

New users will ofttimes make their posts in the wrong forum, and I didn't wanna assume he had a 7.3L PSD.

Spot On - I notice everyone has a Signature Line. But, few have the core information provided when asking for help. Often, you have to chase it down on their profiles and such or ask. Everyone should have their Core Information in their Signature.

While I agree most people don't think to provide enough information (from A to Z, not just about their rig) when posting about a problem, signatures unfortunately aren't available to new users until after they have been registered for 10 days and have posted at least 5 times.

Signatures also are not available in all apps that members use. So it is still often necessary to put the info in the post rather than only the signature.

Another reason to put the details in the post is that the truck may get replaced, so new signature... The thread will be here "forever."

@bigdof84: Welcome to FTE! My first thought is to get a meter probing around the wiper controls, then move to investigating the connector to the wiper motor if the controls check out. Do you have a multimeter?

guess he figured out what that round thing on the end of the stick now does..

I thought it was about wiper size and how you can go bigger and get more coverage on windshield.

I believe i remember it was going from 19 to 22" length. ??
