Re: 94 wipers

Very likely your switch losing it's ground. Get one from a wrecker and try it. If you get a new one and it's not the problem you can't take it back.

By switch you mean the one in the wiper motor or the switch on the column?

Frump,
On the 94 Sable/Taurus if you are having the blades stop in a place on the windshielsd instead of "parking" on the cowl when you shut them off. You will probably have to replace the wiper govenor. This is a sealed module located behind and below the dash on the left side/drivers side. I can't say the exact spot as I have seen one out of position. A Mitchel's manual or your local Ford dealer should be able to tell you where it is and how to ID it. It used to a light color. Dealers also have a diagnostic manual for this problem, ask them. The module is not cheap, about 70 to 80 dollars. A junk yard should have one. Just be sure you diagnose the problem first.

I don't think thats it because it stops all over the window.If I turn it on and off and catch it in the right spot they will park.........

Re: 94 wipers

The switch on the column. That is a very complicated switch. A multi function switch.
It has your wiper high, low,washer,impulse, and turn signals all in one. Oh Yah. Forgot.
It is also your high - low beam switch.

I'd lean more towards a wiper motor than a MF switch. Here's the diagram:
