Should the wipers on my '72 tii return to the rest position when turned off? Mine remain wherever they happen to be when switched off?

isn't functioning, or there's no power to the parking mechanism. There is one lead going to the wiper motor that is hot whenever the ign is on, regardless of wiper switch position. Wire color varies by car year. That's the wire that feeds the parking mechanism.

Check all the wires at the motor (or the plug in the engine compartment) with a voltmeter with the ign on; if they're all dead, then that's your problem. You'll have to trace that wire back to its origin to determine the problem.

cheers, and happy troubleshooting.
