They are 90 degrees to the hood? (Instead of laying down).

How do I fix this???

Do they move at all? Or just stuck where they are? If stuck, the motor may have died.

They work normally. When I turn off the wipers they stop at 90 degrees to the hood. I physically push em back down and then they go back to 90 degrees

Sounds like it'* out of index. I'll see if I can find something in the service manual.

Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position.
Turn the wiper switch to OFF.
Disconnect the wiper/washer switch connector.
Do the wipers park?

Should be the plug right on the switch you use to turn them on.

The switch I use to turn the wipers on is on the end of the turn signal lever

The plug would be on the steering column, by unplugging it you remove it from the circuit. If the wipers park, the switch is bad.

I had another look at the steering column and did not see the plugs you are refering to. Do I need to take off the steering wheel or am I removing the dashboard?
