I don't know if it's just my ST or all 2013 models but mine seems to turn the headlamps on with the wipers in intermittent speed settings now that I've been paying attention to it. Not sure if that's also related to the film over the sensor, but it doesn't turn on in broad daylight.

I noticed this too, I think it has to do with how long the car is off. If I run into a gas station quickly, they come back on, but take longer than say 3 or 4 minutes, and they are off.

The fog light switch does have a "short term memory"

This just means I should drive my car more often so they stay on without my input! Now I need more excuses to drive.

Now I wish I had an ST...

I thought I was crazy one night when I hopped back into my car and it was already on.

also the fog lamps will come on when the car is necer started and the automatic light are on if the fog lamps where on and then the high beams where left on when the car was shut off. Time frame doesn't matter in that case.
