Windshield Wiper Problem

I have a 1995 Mercury Sable ( yes towguy a sable). When I turn the windshield wipers OFF instead of going to the home position at base of windshield, they go to the all the way up position (stopping vertical on windshield). They operate normally otherwise. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I resemble that remark.

Measure it with a micrometer; cut it with an ax.

It's probably a windshield wiper motor.

Ditto to hogfan - if all speeds are working properly, and it just parks wherever it feels like, that's consistent with an internal failure to the wiper motor.
