Windshield Wipers Park Straight Up

I have a '95 Chevy Cavalier, 130,000 miles that runs great...But recently, the windshield wipers stop in the straight up position when the ww switch is turned "off"...Otherwise, they work just fine...Have never had any trouble w/the wipers or motor before, and all is original equipment...The wipers can be in "delay" (intermittant) mode and still work fine..it's only when the switch is turned to "off" that they "park" straight up...Do I need a new wiper motor or what?

Thanks for any tips,

Circuit board in that system maybe be on the fritz. You will be as well off to replace the entire unit.

what did you ever come up with?

I seem to recall a bad ground at the wiper moter causeing this type of problem.
thanks, Tony D.
