windshield wipers

I just bought a 2002 BMW 330xi. The windshield wipers work fine but when I shut them off they stop halfway. anyone have any ideas what this could be? I think its probably a switch on the motor but not sure.

first make sure ur wipers are tight on the splines... there shouldn't be any noticeable movement on the wiper arm and wiper shaft when u move it physically... if there is then tighten that frst.


disconnect battery overnight so u reset the PCM, body electronics,all the modules. reconnect in the morning an let's see what happens ;-)
(make sure u know your radio code-or your radio will not work when you reconnect)
