Canada Wiper Malfunction (stuck on intermittent)

I recently purchased a 2003 Jeep Liberty Limited. For some reason, the wipers have gotten stuck in a slow intermittent mode (like one wipe every 10 seconds - probably the lowest setting). I cannot turn them off. I also cannot turn them on or speed them up. Operating the switch has no effect. Do I need to replace the switch or is there some kind of controller somewhere else that is the culprit?

Once I operated that switch I was able to turn them off and verify that the wipers operated normally. Thanks for thinking about this and offering your suggestions. But I'm afraid I'm a
