Hi. I've not had this problem with mine but for a guess the fault will be with the unit that controls the auto lights and wipers. Your car sounds like it has the auto wiper function which senses rain on the window. That's what the first position on the stalk is for and not intermittent wipe like on most cars. On my Clio the unit is situted by the drivers mirror on the front windscreen. It houses a rain sensor and a light sensor. The light sensor switches the lights on the vehicle when it goes dark. With the Clio I think Renault tried there hand at multiplexing with this unit and so it communicates info from these sensors to the main unit using only two wires.

Hope this might help
