Unhappy 94' Accord Wipers Won't Turn Off - Replaced Switch and Motor Already

I'm at my wits end here. My wipers won't turn off and won't adjust speed when the ignition is in the "on" position. I have already replaced the switch first with a rockauto.com part and second with an OEM part from the Honda dealership near my house (just to be sure). Next, I changed the wiper motor, suspecting the park switch, and the new motor won't turn off either.

I'm worried that it may be a harness issue and therefore a bajillion dollars.

Any suggestions, Honda fans?

PS - if you know your Honda, you know how fun it is to replace the motor..

Cheers,
Heather

I think the wiper motor is always powered, and the switch is on the ground-side of the circuit. So it sounds like you have a wiring-harness problem. A wire rubbed-through and touching ground somewhere... (FUN FUN FUN)

That's exactly what I was afraid of. Man. I've wasted so much time screwing around with finding and shipping switches and motors that I could have repaired the friggin' harness already. And probably spent the same amount of dough.
