Hi, probably the contacts inside the wiper motor,i had the same problem, i took the motor out opened it up and cleaned the contact strips, i seem to remember there are 3 circular copper strips, one for wiper delay one for fast speed and one for wiper park, i think the problem is caused by water getting into the motor.
This was on a 1997 peugeot so im not sure if yours will be the same.

Thanks for your time.  Went to a commercial van breaker's - thought he had a second hand wiper motor but found he had not - said there's a guy round the corner, a vehicle electrician who planned to dismantle my faulty motor.  When I returned, he said no need to dismantle after all, simply disconnect linkages, turn motor to park position, reconnect and cured the problem - he said he could not figure out what caused the problem in the first place - he charged £30, which I considered quite reasonable as he could have charged labour plus a new motor, which would have been considerably more.
If you are anywhere near Sunderland and have this problem, please contact this helpful and honest guy, known as VSS (Vehicle electrics Specialists) : 01915145392 or 07904815136.
