Electric wipers. Sometimes work ok, sometimes won't complete a cycle. Hitting a bump sometimes help. Other times, work OK wet or dry. What do I look for?

Hello and welcome to just answer. This is usually caused by a sticking park switch inside of the wiper motor itself. It may be a poor loose connection at the wiper motor itself, so inspect the connector at the motor for loose fitting or corroded terminals. If the connector is ok, then suspect a stuck park switch in the motor, and have the wiper motor replaced.

I hope this information helps, and let me know if you need further assistance with this.
