I am confused...
The only way to "turn them off" is to push the stalk down to its last position before it goes to the window washer fluid.
One click up from this last position is the rain sensing wipers. Turning the dial adjusts their sensitivity, it does not turn them off - the click of the stalk below this setting like I just described is OFF.
So what you need to do is always keep it OFF and then when you want to use the wipers, you have to move the stalk up at least 2 clicks to bypass the rain sensing wiper selection, and go to the low & high settings.
