I have a 96 crown vic that did the same thing.There is a part in or on the wiper motor that controls the "parking"(stopping) of the wipers.As far as I know the part can"t be fixed or repaired, the wiper motor has to be replaced
(bad design, yes?) This was my only option. Your local dealer should be able to tell you if this is the problem.(I hate my local dealer too!!!!HAHA Actually they have treated me quite well).
Let me know how things work out.
