Adding to my response to Brett, there were no blown fuses in this case.
That was one of the first things that I checked on Wednesday. Besides,
the wipers worked fine all along, just refused to park in the down

turned off. Now they are working correctly...without any effort on my
part and simultaneously with the no-start situation. Tom
