WINDSHIELD WIPERS - CANT YOU RESET THE SYSTEM?

Hi,

I just bought this car, (used), and the wipers didn't work. I checked the fuse box and the fuse was out of the slot. So I plugged it back in and presto they work. The problem I am having now is they don't turn off and it seems the control lever on the steering wheel doesn't change the settings correctly. Is it possible to reset the computer for the wipers? Or is there a relay that controls the wipers that might be malfunctioning? Please help!
Thank You.

So much for a pre-purchase inspection. The wiper motor is controlled by the general module and it may require recoding/replacement to eliminate your wiper problem.
