Again, no, it should not happen. Mine has done it maybe three or four times but it is out of the ordinary. I'm sorry to hear the option is not a available as I love it. Today I didn't even realize it was sprinkling until the wipers came on and cleared the windscreen. I only wish the lights would come on when they activated so that I could be in compliance with CA law - it's hard to not think about turning on the wipers and having to think about turning on the lights.
