Wipers come on by themselves
Anyone heard of this before?
I'll be driving along and the wipers will come on. They'll only make one sweep, and that's it. There is no usual time this happens. Obviously an eleltrical problem, but how would you troubleshoot an intermittent failure?
My truck is still under warranty. How can I describe this to the mechanics without sounding crazy?

I've had a short in another vehicle that made the wipers come on by themseleves. It was a short in the wiper control arm and it was replaced under warranty.
Is this an issue with RainSense system? Does your truck have Rain Sense?

Any updates with this problem? Just curious since you posted this over a year and a half ago...
And just so you know, I have the same problem with my wipers too. There's no pattern at all. They just go on for a 2-3 wipes and then stop. I'll definitely bring this up with my next trip to the dealer...
Hope to hear from you...
