Hi paulnanrod, welcome to RF
I've just had a look at the manaul for my Initiale, as it also has the auto wipers. I thought that there was a way of disabling it, but this doesn't appear to be the case, so they should work. With the auto wipers, the ring on the stalk that would adjust the speed of the intermittent wipers is used to adjust the sensitivity instead. Could it be that the setting is too low? Also, the bump under the wing mirror is the temperature sensor, and doesn't have anything to do with the auto wipers.
As for the cards, it sounds like that one that locks and starts the car has got a broken microswitch on the unlock button. I've heard good things about this site: http://www.keyrepair.co.uk/
. It might be worth sending them the other card as well, as they might be able to diagnose the problem with it.
