Keith -- It was indeed the motor. I was able to get the motor off, even though the wiper assembly was blocked by the A/C (some wrangling required). I opened it up, and it had a cracked nylon gear that controlled the parking position. I got a used motor, installed it, and now it parks correctly. The place where I got the part tried to convince me it was the wiper switch, so it helped to be armed with your information. Thanks for the advice!
