Wipers stuck on

I have a 2011 Explorer. My wipers are turned off on the handle, but they are going at the slowest intermittent speed and wont stop. They will only turn off when I turn the key off. What would be causing this?

Do you have the Rain Sensing Wipers? Could possibly be the control module.

Make sure there is no road debris obscuring/affecting the rain sensor (outside the windshield by the center rear view mirror) if your Explorer is equipped with the rain sensing wipers.

I had the very same problem with my 2011 last summer. Incredibly frustrating. I brought it in for service and they eventually found some malfunctioning switch. I haven't had the problem return thankfully.

Wipers

The OP still has not said if he/she has Rain Sensing Wipers. Could be the control module.

How about you get rid of your Ex so we don't have to deal with every one of your negative posts that don't help anyone's issues or that contribute towards a resolution.

It is getting old.. give it a rest already.
