F-150 wipers- randomly turns on

Hi:

Ok, I can't be the first guy with this happening (and I tried searching with no success) as I drive my truck, every now and again the wipers turn on. Just once. then are off again.

It's a '99 F-150 XLT. Is this the switch? other? Any experience with this little electrical gremlin would be appreciated.

Thanks!!

Iv,e seen this a hundred times and its alway been the Multi-funtion Switch. Aka wiper switch, turn sig switch, 4 way flasher switch, dimmer switch.

Don't mess with the dealer, NAPA carries them and I am sure Rock auto does as well.
