The rear windshield wipers will not stop. I didn't even turn them on and they are wiping. I messed with the switch. Turned it off. We pulled out every fuse. I checked all the fuses to see if they were bad. At least I think most of them.

Nothing works.

Hey,

It looks like you have a rear wiper module that has gone out, here is a wiring diagram so you can trace the wires. But I would check the system powers and grounds because an absence of either can cause the motor to stay running. Also there is a trigger from the BCM I would cut that to see if it is a BCM issue.

Please let us know happens so it will help others.

Best, Ken

Rear wiper runs on its own, stays on even when power is shut off. Will stay on for about an hour and then stop. New module, same result, new switch, same result
