Were the wipers "stuck" to the windscreen with frost?
If they were the wipers probably tried to operate and caused a malfunction.

With earlier versions the wipers have to be switched off every time - to avoid problems like this when you get back in the car to start the engine. With the facelift meganes you can leave the wiper stalk in the auto position permanantly - I presume it has different software that stops them trying to operate when frozen to the screen.

It may have been down to the temperature. The sensor probably had ice over it anyway. Have you tried them again after cleaning the windscreen area by the sensor and now it has warmed up a bit?
