Windshield Wipers...

Ok.. before i take my car to the dealer.. i figured i'd come here and let you flame me if in fact i'm the moron and there isn't anything wrong with them.

When i am running my wipers, and then turn them off they will stop mid swipe.. not really sure why but i have to turn them off and then push in on the end to make the washer fluid come out and they will go back down normally.. this just started happening so i'm not sure if its the motor or if its me bein a moron.. so.. you tell me.. :)

well, there's no magic to turning off/on the wipers; i'm sure you're doing it the right way, just take to the dealer, there's definitely something wrong with them
