wiper madness

I have a 1996 C220 and just recently the wiper has started turning on by itself. It will wipe once or twice and then stop. Sometimes it will do it several times a day and other times not at all. Has anyone had this problem occur and if so what was the diagnosis?

RE: wiper madness

I've had this happen, not in a mercedes though, in an old shape 3 series BMW. My problem was if i turned them on they'd never stop! The problem was traced to the wiper relay, very quick to fix and cost about £60. I wouldn't mind betting you've got the same problem, get that checked before going further. Keep us updated!
