I just bought a 2017 Ford Edge Titanium 3 weeks ago and love it. But about 7 days ago, the wipers started coming on without my touching them. I would be driving along or sitting at a red light on a sunny day, and they would swipe 2-3 times and then stop. Sometimes I could drive for an hour without it happening, and then all of a sudden they would swipe. I assumed it was the automatic rain sensor function, so I unchecked it. Well, that didn't change anything. They still continue to swipe at all times when I'm running the car. There is no pattern to when it happens or how many times it swipes. Obviously, it is incredibly annoying.
So last week I took it in for service at the Ford Dealer near my work and after a day of tests and diagnosis, they said they had to order a new Wiper Switch. I agreed, but had it sent to the Ford Dealership where I originally bought the car. The Switch came in today, and the Service Center replaced it in the morning and told me all was well. I drove the car 1/2 mile and the wipers started to swipe again...so I took it back and left the car all day. They told me they're very busy on Saturdays and asked me to take a rental home and let them work on it again on Monday. So now I'm driving a dirty, smoke-filled Hyundai while I wait for my new car to be fixed.
I can't believe this is happening.
