You dont have an auto switch on your wipers do you?
Sounds to me like something may have clicked and then the switch has broken, unable to disable it?

The relay may be another option to look into.

hey there, i disconnected the battery for 40 mins, reconnected it and the problem was still there. after looking at the manual, i then removed fuse F22. the problem has now stopped.when i replace the fuse with a new one, will the problem return? if it does, is it likely to be a short or as is more likely, a problem due to the alarm that i have been reading about. any advise would be great. all ideas are better than none
Windscreen wiper motors have a dynamic braking action when off by shorting the motor windings, stopping the motor quick and making the motor hard to turn.
It sounds like your dynamic braking circuit has failed and air is moving the blades while driving causing them to do another park cycle.
Its probably a bad relay or a contact in the wiper motor.
