I'll be honest, I've had periods where my rain sensing wipers don't do the dry swipe, but they'll still do it about 30% of the time.
I know it shouldn't come to this but, this is how I get my rain wipers to NOT do the dry swipe 70% of the time when the stalk is in the rain sensing position, when coming to my locked car in the morning...
1) Hit the lock key, and let the car flash once.
2) Hit unlock after the lights turn off.
3) Turn on the car.
If the swipe was normal, this procedure SHOULDN'T lead to no dry swipe. But it does work pretty well. Don't know if this would work on anyone else's car.
