Wiper Motor Faulty

Q: I have a 1998 Honda Civic and my windshield wipers won’t stop. It was raining really hard so I put it on the 3rd setting (the fastest speed). When it stopped raining, I turned it off but it didn’t stop. It kept going at the medium speed. What could be the problem?

A: There is a technical service bulletin on your vehicle for that issue. A faulty wiper motor can cause the wipers not to turn off or park in the correct position. Replacement of the wiper motor is necessary. The motor costs around $100 and will take about an hour to replace.
