2002 Volvo V70 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 140000 miles
With the wiper switch in the "OFF" position, the windshield wipers run continuously (just slightly more slowly than in the "LOW" position). The problem is a bit intermittent - sometimes will work correctly for a day, then back to running all the time.
I replaced the wiper switch. Worked ok for 2 days, then back to running continuously.
Checked the ground connection for the wiper motor electrical connection - voltmeter said it was ok; cleaned ground lug where it bolts to chassis (voltmeter still says ok); wipers still run continuously.
Have seen similar symptoms in other manufacturer cars online as being due to bad park switch in the wiper motor. Not sure if this is applies to this car (2002 Volvo V70 X/C). In intermittent mode, the wipers do stop at the correct position.
Any help would be appreciated. I'd prefer to not replace wiper motor unnecessarily.
have the same problem?
