My windshield wipers are stuck in the upright (vertical) position. I have replaced the wiper tramission and the driver side wiper arm. How do I reset the wipers to the horizontal (Parked) position?

I'm assuming the wiper motor works OK and moves the wipers further toward the hood when you turn them off. If not, the circuit that controls that movement may be defective. But for them to stop vertically, there must be something else the matter. By chance, could you have gotten the linkage crank turned 180 degrees on the transmission's output shaft?
