Strange. Windshield wipers randomly come on

So there I was, sitting at a stop sign waiting to turn. As I went, the wipers came on and went back and forth a few times and stopped. I thought maybe I hit the stalk as I was turning and shrugged it off. However, as I am driving straight, they did it again the next day. This time I knew I didn't touch them since my right hand was on my stick. This went on randomly for a week and then stopped. That was two weeks ago. Today, it again turned on for a couple seconds and then stopped. WTF? Anyone else have this issue? Maybe it's the ghost in my house hopping in and riding with me. Apparently, there is a female ghost with brown hair in my house who likes to screw with us. She turns on my ice maker and ice comes out (i'm DEAD serious - no pun intended) , walks around upstairs when I know nobody is up there, moved stuff. There are other weird things but nothing actually scary. My family has actually become accustomed to her LOL. The weirdest part is that my house is almost brand new but the locals here think the land my subdivision is possibly on top of where people died during the Civil War or Revolutionary War.

My mom used to have this problem with her dodge intrepid, switch the relay around with something you don't really use, we used the AC relay was dead of winter. That would be my first guess

Still under warranty means free fix. No worries.

Mine started doing the same thing. I too have a 2012 JKU. Did you get your clockspring fixed?
