Rain Sensitive Windshield Wipers

I had the windshield replaced on my 2003 C230 sedan. Now my windshield wipers go very fast when there's no rain and intermittent when there's a heavy rain. Sort of reversed. Any thoughts on how to correct the problem. Windshield was replaced by a glass company, not an M-B dealer.

Does that glass company know what they are doing? I think they might have used the wrong windshield or possibly damaged the sensor when they replaced the glass.
