    Default Wipers from Hell and a loss of Cruise?

    Okay, car's running pretty good these days and I'm tackling the finer points.

    My cruise suddenly doesn't work and if I turn on the wipers they work, spew fluid, and require I shut off the car to stop.

    Any thoughts? It's like a Seinfeld episode, I swear!

    Wipers....either the park switch inside the motor or the motor cover itself which houses the circuit board, park switch is 20 bucks on eBay... Cover is 100.00 buck

    Yes mine did the same thing I would turn them on and they would operate fine, but would only turn off if I shut the car off, then they would seat themselves

    Thanks. Not looking forward to that swap. Looks hard. Maybe I'll just avoid rain???

    There is a procedure to "calibrate" the wipers, resetting the Park tab. I found it on another forum (Digital Corvettes) but the pics won't show. Is there a similar instruction here? Thanks!!
