Windshield wipers won't turn off!

I was wondering if you guys had a solution. I hit my windshield washing button on the way to work and the wipers wouldn't stop. So I pulled over and turned my truck off and they still kept going. The only way I could get them to stop is by pulling the fuse. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

2002 F-250 7.3

I have a similar problem, When i hit the wipers to clear the winshield of water sometimes it keeps going every 20 seconds or so then stopped. Interested to see what others have experienced . My guess would be some kind of timer for the delay is staying on ... Probably in the G.E.M.

Probably ECM or GEM related. Does your front windshield leak? That is a common problem and the water goes down to a metal dash piece that drops the water right onto the computer.

Then weird stuff starts happening . . . my air/heat controls don't shut off half the time and my wipers don't come on sometimes . . .

I had my windshield resealed a few years back but the damage is done I think.

The wiper/blinker arm does go back more often than a GEM or computer . . . might want to replace that first.

Thanks guys! For an update, I tore into my brothers truck yesterday and pulled out his multifunction switch (blinker arm and stuff) and threw it in my truck. It still did the same thing. So I'm going to give the dealership a call tomorrow and see how much a new wiper motor is. I think it has something to do with the wiper park sensor (what stops the blades at the bottom when you turn them off) I'll keep you guys updated. Thanks for the input!
