Default wipers intermitantly working

I have a 97 ranger that the wipers have stopped working on any of the delay settings and sometimes work on low. They always seem to work on high but when you turn them on delay they go about a quarter of the way up the windshield and stop. they also won't park you have to time turning them off to get them to stop at the bottom. Any help would be appriciated thanks.

Either the switch to turn the on is bad or the motor is bad

You can get a new multifunction switch on ebay for 30 dollars

I would bet on the motor itself going bad. Exactly what my mustang did and replaced motor, all was good.

The motor is bad. The switch doesnt control where they park, it is in the motor. Swap it out and you should be golden
