M3P Auto wipers on when in Autopilot normal? [yes]

Ok something weird happened tonight. I was driving on the highway and when I engaged cruise control my wipers turned on. I tried to use voice commands to turn them off but the wipers wouldn't disengage. When I pulled up the interface the off icon was unresponsive, wipers were in automatic, however I was able to change wiper speeds from I-III.
If I disengaged cruise control by stepping on the brake, the off icon for the wipers became responsive and I was able to turn them off.
I rebooted the screen but there was no change. The issue was repeated three more times.
Two days ago the car charged to 90% however I never changed the setting from 80% but the setting was changed.
Finally, I had a few days where the climate control would turn on after I put the car in park. This seems to have stoped or it may be intermittent. I need to keep monitoring this.
Last update was approximately a week and a half ago and was not done at home but was done at work using over the air connection and not a network.
Thoughts on what to do?
Anyone else have this issue?
Very bizarre, I will contact Tesla if it occurs again when I take the car out next.
When you engage Autopilot - the auto wipers & auto high beam headlamps are switched on by default.
You can switch off the auto high beams - using the stalk but you cannot disengage the auto wipers.
That is why you could only switch wipers off totally when you were not in Autopilot!
About the HVAC constantly coming on by itself, I experience the same thing but moving the seats a little and hitting save with the HVAC seems to help a little bit I still run into the issue from time to time.

It is in the manual, have you read it?

Thanks, it was late last night when I got home and posted this. I found another thread afterwards discussing this issue. Seems a bit to bizarre to be something that would be addressed in the owners manual, but you learn something new everyday.
