Wipers start when I start the jeep

Searched it and couldn't find my problem...

When I start my Jeep after it sitting outside overnight (humid nights here) my wipers will turn on (without moving the arm) for about 2-3 minutes then stop automatically and function normally.

Doesn't sound like the typical motor burn out.

sounds like the switch to me. You can get some contact cleaner from Radio Shack and spray that in the switch. Costs like 5 dollars for a small can. Has worked for me on a couple things.

Check for a bad grounds. That is frequently the culprit.
