They don't go down in intermittent mode, or at all? I know on my TC, when you're using Int., they only go down to a certain point (just below where your eye sees the hood) until you turn the wipers off altogether. They'll then pull down the rest of the way behind the cowl.

It may be a faulty park mechanism, as 351cat suggested.
Out of the three Fox Cougars I've owned, all three had issues with the wiper motor.
If I remember correctly (this was nine years ago), I pulled the park mechanism from the front of the motor and cleaned the contacts. They were very corroded which prevented the wipers from dropping down into the cowl. I recall drilling out some rivets, too.
