Wipers don't Park or have Intermittent.

I have checked the Relay in the PDC and swapped to a known to have been working BCM and my wipers are still wonky. They have no intermittent at all and when I shut them off they still swipe about 3-4 more times then stop wherever they damn well please. Could there be something wrong with the wiper motor itself. Oh and If I use the auto headlight function and use the wipers the headlights will shut off and come back on at times.

The wipers work properly when they are NOT on an intermittent setting, right? If so, your motor is fine.

On the intermittent settings, wipers work with a simple capacitor circuit, which is located in your BCM. When you set your wipers on either low or high, the BCM is not involved, and the switch activates the wiper motor directly.

So, your problem lies either in your column switch or your BCM.

Low and High work fine but they don't stop when I shut them off right away. They will wipe a few more times then stop wherever.

Mine has the same exact behavior. I'm not sure how to tell if it's the box or the multi-switch.
