Default Wipers won't turn off. (I'm lucky)

Ok so bought the 17 Prius 3 last week. First few days CEL came on turns out its the dumb people that don't know how to put on a gas cap.

Today I got all sides and the rear windows tinted. It was the first rain the car has really been in besides a weird shower when I was driving in the mountains. This morning was a lot of rain. I drove all the way to the window tinting place with the wipers on and I believe I left them on when I left the car.
Tinting place did the windows and I picked it up when they were closed. I started the car and ICE malfunction came up on the dash. It then went off. I just kinda shrugged it off like idk what that was. I put it in Drive and let off the brake.. Front Windshield wipers come on.

Here is the fun part, they only come on when you're off the brake. If you hold the brake they go off. Kinda crazy! Made it to Toyota 30 min before they closed. All techs already went home. Service manager pulls my fuse and tells me come back tomorrow. Good thing it's not raining!

Has anyone experienced this before? I read some threads on here about the back one after tinting and then stopped when it dried but really the windshield? That wouldn't be affected by the hatch at all right?

I tried the spare fuse and no luck there either.. I did read around the forums but no one mentioned how holding the brake would stop them then let off they start again..

Any insight in this?!?!? Bringing it in tomorrow again after work.

Just a wild idea here .........
Are you sure that it isn't equipped with automatic (rain sensor) wipers ??

So.....what do you intend to do next ?

This is still under warranty so the LEAST you should do it take it in so that the problem will be documented incase it happens again.
