Our 1996 Saturn SC1 wiper motor started failing by coming on randomly, and sometimes it parked normally, sometimes it parked wherever it wanted.
Then it got worse. When we did turn it on, it would wipe a few times, then stop. Sometimes it would park, sometimes it would not.
So we bought a wiper motor at a salvage yard, it looked identical. After installing and making sure it was in the park position, it still acts up.
It cleans the entire windshield properly, but when you turn it off it parked partway up the windshield. We tried changing the position on the orbit of the cam 180 degrees, but it got worse. It now parks halfway up the windshield.
