wiper arm stops at vertical position

This is not a problem on my 55 project truck but my sisters '90 Ford Probe. When the wipers are turned off they both stop in a vertical position. They had been working fine. Is this a switch problem? Would taking the arms off and re-installing them in a horizontal position fix this?

Thanks guys...Merry Christmas

Keith

wiper parking

Moving the arms would make them wipe your hood. Inside the motor most wiper motors have a half moon type contact... when you turn off the switch the half moon is still contacted with ground usually until the arm moves to the park position. it moves past by inertia until it no longer has electrical contact and the arm stops. on some cars you can check by turning off the key when the wipers are up .. if you are fast with the key the arms stay up. check wiring connections and grounding of the notor.
