The windshield wipers on my 2002 Chevy Venture do not retract under the hood in cold weather. After I shut them off they make one more half swipe and stop at the top of the swipe on the windshield. A
It's the brake on the wiper motor.This is a common problem with these vans.There is a little tab on the motor that parks the wipers in the proper place.If you take it apart,you will see that the tab is deteriated or broken.
