The problem is something to do with the windshield wiper motor or something. At first they would stop just anywhere, and I would have to get out and move them back and forth to start them again, then when I would turn them off, they wouldn't turn off. This happened again and again, them going out at assorted times. Finally, now they make a grinding sound but will not come on at all.
