Hello, it sounds like the front sam control module has been shorted out . so you are saying the wipers continue to run and also the headlight washers?

will you try to fix yourself or what kind of info are you looking for.?

What is that and how much is that part?
Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 10 months ago.

the front sam is the front fuse box in the engine bay. that fuse box is what controls the wipers and headlight washers . its the module that pretty much controls all the front end electronics. its about 800$ depending on the location of your dealer . you can buy them used fairly cheap on ebay, hope this helps.
