Windshield Wipers Go Crazy

Windshield Wipers Go Crazy

Have had the car for nearly 3 years now, and it has always had this problem. The wipers are way too aggressive, and once they speed up they don't slow down. When I first turn them on, they operate correctly, with the appropriate delay between passes comparable to other vehicles. But after about 2-3 passes they speed up a bit, then a bit more, then on full time. Even in a very light rain, they stay on and begin to shudder because there is not enough water on the glass. Sometimes when it is really bad, I have to manually operate the wipers, turning them on and back off every 5 or 10 seconds just to keep them from going into a frenzy and driving me crazy with noise.

Today I had the car in for service and described this problem to them carefully. The service notes from today: "Normal operation at this time."

Does anyone else have this problem?
