BATTERY DRAIN ON 98

1998 Ford Contour • 4 cylinder FWD Automatic • 160,000 miles

I have a 1998 Ford Contour. I started getting a clicking sound from under the driver's side of the dash when I tried to start the car and it drained the battery. Also the wipers came on and wouldn't go off in any position when trying to restart the car. Could it be a short in the wiring under the dash?

Try checking the wiper motor relay could be sticking
