WINDSCREEN WIPERS

I have been experiencing problems with the windscreen wipers which are working when the engine is switched on. They are not rain sensitive. The wipers may work on intermittent - the most common or normal, but they do so whilst they are supposed to be switched off. The problem is not continuous and many days or even weeks have gone by without a problem. Sometimes they go without being switched on but only for a few times and then stop. Sometimes as now they are working continuously when the key is turned. I have had the car to the gargage on several occassions. The wiper control has been changed as have 2 other parts. The names of which I do not know but they would be the most likely problem after the control. Apart from the control which changed nothing each visit to the garage has apparently solved the problem. Until the next time they start up. I am at my wits end.
