wiper motor getting constant power?

If I have the wiper motor plugged in and the actually switch plugged in, when I turn the key to acc. The wipers stay on so I just unplug the switch under the dash. Could the motor or switch just be bad?

The wiper motor has power all the time with the key on, the switch completes the ground circuit. If unplugging the switch stops the motor sounds like the switch is bad.

Re: wiper motor getting constant power?

BTW there are 2 different switches, one for hidden wipers, one for standard. Maybe you have the wrong switch for your motor.

That's exactly what happens. And it's a nova so no hideaway wipers.
