Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to help get your problem solved.

This would be caused by the wiper switch or the totally integrated control module which is built into fuse box under the hood. The integrated control module is common to fail so that is the more likely cause. You can unplug the wiper switch to see if problem still happens if so you know problem is module, if not problem is switch. Let me know if you have more questions or if there is anything else I can do to help. Thanks.
