Disconnect the wiper motor. Wipers have a circuit that keeps them running until they are in the park position. It sounds like your new one is defective.

If u can find the answer please text me 315-726- 1809 I'm having the same problem

I have found that the rear wiper transmission freezes up and stops moving. Many times this leads to the diagnoses of the wiper motor not working. With rear window open, try moving wiper by hand. If does not move freely or easily, needs to be replaced. This will keep the motor from returning to park.
