We stopped in Winnemucca for a Supercharge and lunch yesterday. The charge finished faster than the people, so I moved the car out of the Supercharger to in front of the restaurant, and finished lunch. When we climbed in the car and I started it up, the wipers immediately started wiping in downpour mode. It was absolutely dry. Clear blue sky. Maybe bug splats being interpreted as rain drops? So I did a wash cycle. No difference. I set the wipers on manual, position I (low intermittent), and backed out. When I was facing a different direction, I went back to auto, and all was fine for the rest of the trip, including pointing in the same direction toward the sun as it had been parked. My only remaining theory is there was something about the texture or decor of the building in front of where the car was parked that made it think it was looking through water droplets. Hmmm.
