Wipers wont go down all the way?

After turning my windshield wipers off, the wiper blades won't go back down all of the way to their rest position. How do I go about fixing this?

The wiper control module is the black plastic cover on the wiper motor. My guess is you need a new one. GM should still have them available. They may also be available aftermarket. It's a fairly easy fix.

Easy yes but expect to pay almost 100 bucks for a new one I need a new one too I called Hawks they have one for 45 but when i asked if it was delay the guy said " it should be " and that was not good enough for me so I'm stuck with no delay or washer for now till I have an extra 100 .good luck

I got one from NAPA last fall for $89 with the old one for a core return. Don't remmbr if it was a rebuild or new.
