Default erratic wipers

The wipers on my gf's truck are acting weird. If you turn them on then right back off, they may stop instantly or they may return to the parked position. Also may or may not work on the various intermittent settings. Is the switch failing?

Sounds like the switch. Check with your parts department to see what's serviceable (may have to replace the whole stick).

try the motor first, the switch just sends a signal to the tipm, the tipm controls the wipers themselves.
