Either the replacement sensor the windscreen technician should have fitted isnt connected properly to the glass or it has developed an intermittant fault - quite common with Renaults especially megane scenics and grand scenics....

Intermittent wipers not functioning properly on 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee


Does it have the rain sensor (behind the mirror). Sometimes the rain sensor module comes loose.
Otherwise probably the wiper motor, which has the park limit switch in it, needs to be replaced.

My wipers go mad on occasions and then seem to reset themselves.


The C5 has rain sensing wipers which sometimes act like this if the sensor which is in the middle of the windscreen at the top is obscured ie the glass is dirty.

The problem you have comes from wiper blades causing friction in light rain conditions and can be cured by cleaning the rubber that contacts your windscreen with a rubber cleaner/conditioner or you can use spray silicone on the blades.

2004 Jeep rain sensing wipers continue to run regardless of setting or amount of rain


a couple of thoughts:
Has your windshield just been replaced?
The sensor is up by the rear view mirror, is it plugged in all the way?
Do you have the right size wiper blades on your vehicle? (too short of a blade misses the rain sensor and does not wipe it clean)
How good are your blades? ( as above, to turn off the rain sensor the blade needs to wipe it clean)
The rain sensor works by projecting multiple inferred beams to the inside of the windshield, like a prism, they reflect back to collectors. when there is a water droplet on the outside of the windshield it changes a beams trajectory and it misses the collector thust turning on the wipers.
(yes, this all happens in that little sensor up by the rear view mirror.)
check to make sure the wiper switch is in the right position.
also....I've seen rain sensors not work properly when the hood or doors are open.
hope this helps
