a girl camee to me and asked about her wipers when she turns them off they go back up and stay there is her motor shot I looked it up online and it said that the splines might have stipped out but that would make her wipers not work at all

This does not sound like stripped splines to me. Something is telling the motor to "park" the wipers in the up position instead of the down position. That message is coming from something electronic. Find that part and you've found your problem.

http://www.automotiveforums.com/t767192- wipers_stop_in_upright_position.html Visit this link. Looks like this is your problem. Something is telling the wipers to stop in the up position, but fortunately its not an electronic part, but a part that you can probably fix yourself for free. Good luck.
