: Wipers stay on after ignition?

Has anyone else had this problem... the windshield wipers on our 2004 SRX V8 AWD stay on after the ignition if off, until you turn the wiper switch off. Anyone have any ideas??

pull the key, or open the door.

It is retained power as GMJim says.....the radio will stay on as well. If you don't turn them off manually though they will still be on when you next start the car.

Maybe I should clarify, the engine is off, the key is out, and the retained power is deactivated from the door being opened, but wipers, front and rear, stay on. Any thoughts?
