If I put on my wipers, I try to put it off when screen has been cleaned. But wipers will not stop until I switch off ignition. What's the fault?
Do you

Hi,

If you can not turn the wipers off, it sounds like either the switch or a relay issue. I apologize but this vehicle isn't offered in the US, so my technical information is very limited.

Check the wiper relay. Here is a link showing how to test a relay:

Here are a couple links you may find helpful:

The relay can be either under the hood or in the passenger compartment. Let me know if you have questions and what you find.
