Wipers wont stop

I have an 02 350 7.3 tried starting one cold morning, but the batteries didn't have enough juice. When i stopped cranking the wipers came on and they wont shut off. Is there a relay stuck or a switch of some sort?

I have tried pullling the fuse and dissconecting the batteries but it didn't help the situation.

It sounds like the relay. Open the power distribution box and pull the relay. That should stop them. Last relay I bought from Ford cost around $10. If you want to do a quick check, change the relay with another one just like it in the box.

Not sure what relay it is. I pulled them all out and they still don't stop. The only thing that will stop them is pulling out the the fuse. Any other Ideas? Thanks...

It sounds like one of 3 things. 1- the park in the motor is shot. This is what stops the motor in the same spot when you turn it off. This means a new wiper motor. 2- The switch is shot or broke internally and the switch will not open to turn off the motor, need a new switch. 3- The wires are touching some where in the harness and over riding the switch.
As a note, I would not do anything until you use the owners manual and confirm you pulled the right relay. There is a fuse box and a power distribution box. Check both. Most of the time either on top or under the lid they usally have every fuse and relay marked.
