The only way I can slow down the wipers from going randomly is to keep the stalk in the 4 dot middle position, although even there they do occasionally start up for a pass or two.. If I put the stalk in the off position when I stop the car, the wipers always come on when I start the car. Often when the wipers go at random, the rear wiper goes too, although the switch is set for off. I'll guess that the stalk needs replacing. I was hoping that it wouldn't bother me so much that I could wait until the 10K, but we are in ice and snow central, and often the wipers get stuck; if they come on at random, and they are stuck, I don't think that can be good. I can't stand going to the dealer, but I may have to bite the bullet. they are having an open house on Friday-I may try to talk to a tech person and see if this is a known issue.
