Sorry for the repeat posts, I just don’t see and edit function here-

I read this thread and wiped off the area around the sensor / cameras, and it still triggers. Interestingly, I discovered it’s the orange mercury halide street lamps that trigger it.

Give it a try; if you’re out in the country, you probably won’t encounter this.

Interesting... They replaced all the mercury vapor lamps around here with LEDs a while ago...

I’m having this exact issue. I took delivery of my Y on Thursday and now it turns on my wipers at night, super annoying.

Still plenty of them in Colorado Springs. Ironically, I’m presently at the SC, I’ll let you guys know what info they kick back to me afterwards.
