Wiper fault

I've had this problem for a while now and it seem to be getting worse, when i turn my wipers onto intermittent they wipe then stop about an 8th of the way up the windscreen. Could this be the motor getting tired or is it an electrical fault? Also this morning i turned my wipers on again and they kept wiping (even when i turned them off) I had to turn my engine off and back on again to stop them wiping!

Anyone got any ideas?

It's more than likely your actual wiper motor. There is a number of threads if you search in electrical faults. Think its the micro switches inside which can't be fixed. I've got same problem on my 06 1.8se. NON AUTO wiper, but i'm gonna hang out til they go totally.
