Hey guys - I'll be tackling this replacement this weekend and have a question about the "running your wipers and shutting off in the full up position"

After I kill the ignition when the wipers are fully up and remove the old linkage/motor; Will there be any issue when I reinstall the new linkage/motor and plug in the new motor that's in the fully down position?

The new linkage is sitting in the home (or fully down) position, I just want to be sure the computer and/or motor won't be confused in some way since the car was shut off with the old linkage/motor fully up, while the new linkage/motor fully down.

Thanks for the help!!
