Switch problems?

the one on the steering wheel or motor???

The switch on the steering wheel. That is where the power to the wiper motor originates. If the switch does disconnect then the wipers will not turn off. The switch also controls the amount of electrical current to run the motor at different speeds. If the wiper motor runs, the motor should be good. To stop the wipers from going with the switch off, you will have to pull the fuse. This also may disable other items in the vehicle at the same time. Pull the fuse, then put it back in. See if that fixes it. If that does not fix it, it has to be the switch that activates the wiper motor, which is on the steering column.
