Default Wipers wont return to park position

Hi everyone just a quick question please. My wipers have decided to park anywhere they fancy when I switch them off-instead of returning to the left side of the screen. Is the problem do to with the wiper stalk, wiper motor or somewhere else? Cheers for any help Bjorn.

Agree wth 16 Saabs. If the relay doesn't do it, I would try ensureing that all components move easily/well lubricated, etc. Possible that they are moving just well enough to operate, and this is preventing themfrom completing the cycle.

On my wipers, one of them moves only part way, and sometimes hangs in mid. It has a crack on it that goes all the way through. It looks like some kind of powdered metal on the inside of the wiper assembly. The crack is on the circular hole that fastens to the motor and bolts on. I think that it might have cracked when I tightened it (too tight?) or from the previous owner. If it is not the relay, check the wiper assembly if lubrication doesn't solve it.
