Wipers gone crazy, control module replacement, help please

Greetings community,

2001 S500

Wiper position II and III work fine.

At present time, wipers do a single wipe in position 0 (as if there were set on intermittent) every time I start the ignition.

Now setting I (auto sensing mode) is the one with most problems.
Every now and then, though senses rain quite well, starts to wipe endlessly until something gives up (module/motor?) and wipers stop in the middle of the windshield. To reset, I set to 0, then back on.

So far, I am unable to get a certain answer what may be causing this.

I've checked associated relays and fuses. I've "reset" the auto wiping feature.

Presently, I am trying to find out where it is the control module or the motor which is defective. If its the control module, where is it located?

Thank you all very very much!!
