windshield wiper issue????

on my 03 325i, my windshield wipers just started acting up. when you use them, they work fine, when you go to turn them off, they stop right in the middle, they won't go all the way down unless i push them down, is this the motor going out, ???

There are points in the wiper motor that tell the motor where in the cycle the blades are. If the switches that touch these points are bad, then the motor will not know where it needs to stop. I don't think you can fix the switches. You will have to replace the whole motor.
