Wipers will not turn off

2019 Thor Axis 27.7 here. My wipers will not turn off. Anyone know what the problem might be? UGH!

That sounds lik something that needs the attention of a Ford Dealership...
Wait a minute: where are you; that you don't need your wipers on?
We've had a Summer that has us thinking about those "forty days, and forty nights" stories...

Probably need to replace the windshield wiper control module on the steering column. Google "wipers won't turn off" for your type of chassis and you should be able to see some youtube videos that show how to replace it if you want to do it yourself.
You can probably pull the fuse to stop it until you get it replaced.

Could be the parking switch in the motor itself.

Would that parking switch be inside the wiper motor? I had the Wiper motor replaced today by Matt's big trucks because Ford dealership said that they tested the wiper switch and didn't find anything wrong with it. Before leaving I tested the wipers and they worked fine. Then I pressed the wash button and the wipers turned on and never turned off again. Any thoughts? K.

Well that tells you it's it the washer circuit. When you start the washer cycle it continues wiping for a specified time delay. Sounds like that mechanism is bad.

The parking switch is in the motor assembly, but it doesn't do anything until the external circuitry removes power to the motor assembly, so this is not your issue now.

Do you know where that would be located? K.
