There is a common problem with the parking switch on the 110 model, it
can fail in which case the wipers stop at the point they are switched
off or, worse, it can short and they keep on wiping.

Part number used to be 520160A.

Sound like the park switch (Diode) has failed - 520160 11.98
here. Its mounted in the side of the wiper motor body and is cunning
disguised to look like an ordinary connecor. It's a bit of a faff
to get at, but easily changed.
