Q: windshield wipers won't turn off.

asked by on

wipers won't turn off even when the car is turned off

Hi there. First remove the wiper fuse from the fuse box or remove the battery cables. Then replace the wiper selection switch. The switch is stuck in the on position and will not release. If you need further assistance with your wipers staying on, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
