Default Windshield wipers acting up

I recently purchased a used 2000 Dodge Neon and my windshield wipers are acting funny. The wipers just come on by themselves if I turn on the headlights, turn on the A/C, or turn the **** that shows where air is blowing to certain positions. It only seems to happen during the first 15 minutes or so of driving, and after that they usually stay off. I was just wondering what might be causing this problem and how much it might cost to fix it. Any help would be much appreciated!

Default windshield wipers acting up

since you say this is happening when you turn on the lights etc., My guess is the multifunction switch is going bad, actually not the switch, but the connectors in the wiring harness to it. They have a tendency to melt where they clip together. Short of a new switch, which is expensive, you could get one from a junk yard or get the conectors if you can find two of them that are good.
