windscreen wipers not parking

Got my xc which is going over the pits but one of the things they picked is that wipers dont automatically return to the parked position. Ive tried with a two speed switch and an intermitent switch but both dont return. It it the motor i have in there or do they just not return? Confused

cheers chartoo

Check the earth on the switch and wiper motor. Generally the plug is loose @ the motor.

Its the motor. They have separate contacts in them for parking the arms.
