I know using the FOCCCUS app you can re-calibrate them. I don't know if that would help or not. Is there tension on them like they are not sliding well enough, or is that as far as it goes even it you physically push it further.

Nah the tension and everything seems fine. If they stop like that and I press down on the stalk they just return to park without swiping again.

Just asking because this picture is in a car wash, but did you have them on during the car wash? Maybe they got beat on while wiping and it skewed the resting position. So even if you physically move the wipers back down, it returns to that position thinking it is home?

Not at all. I took the picture while entering the car wash after I had pressed the stalk down for a single swipe because they spray the car before entering. That was just the quickest I could my phone out for a pic. This isn't the first time it's happened either. This is about the 4th time it's happened.

Be careful if you go to recalibrate them. On mine the passenger side went first causing them to tangle up and break a blade off there for slamming back down and cracking my windshield :(

Yeah not even trying anything on my own to repair it. I'm not even at 3,000 miles. No need to be breaking things already.

By the lack of comments though I feel like this may not be a common issue.

I haven't experienced your issue and I've been driving the car for almost 6K miles and 2 and a half months now. I did notice that it takes a little longer for the single wipe to receive and perform the command than my previous Civic Si.

Mine did this one time yesterday coincidentally, but it was after I hit the thing to do a single swipe and then hit it again to do another one. I don't know if that had anything to do with it in my case but I immediately noticed it wasn't lined up right as I hit the button, but then it returned to normal.

Mine happened when put them back on after installing my intake. Had them off by one tooth and it wanted to recalibrate. So was my fault, however was little mad that Ford had the passenger side go first to calibrate when the driver side must move first.
