motor has a “park” switch that continues to supply power, when the dash switch
is turned off, until the blades reach the Park position, then the switch opens
and the blades stay put. When the switch fails to make contact, the blades stop
wherever they are when the dash switch is turned off.
should be a repair process for this failure mode in your factory shop manual.

Subject: [FWDLK] Autopark for
noticed that on the plus side, my ’55 Dodge has electric wipers as opposed to
the vacuum wipers I experienced as a youth on same year Chevy and
wondering what idiot would design a wiper to quit when engine vacuum went to
zero. But, I noticed today that the wipers do not park. Is that a
defect or a design issue?
