then just clean the windshield... as long as you car isn't in drive your windshield isn't going to magically turn on.

The windshield service mode is not possible to activate unless you rotate the wiper control on the left stalk all the way off.
in fact it’s an easy way to deactivate it after it is in service mode just rotate it to the auto position or any other position and it will return home.
