Hi Callme57 and welcome, could be the parking switch inside the wiper unit has failed and shorted causing the wiper to keep on going?

Ray you can disconnect the parking switch on the wiper unit, and just switch it off on the control.
Might be able to get a replacement wiper unit from a scrap yard.
