    I think auto wipers was bundled with auto headlights as the sensor is combined behind the rear view mirror. Best test is when it is dry put the wiper into the intermittent wipe position (1 click up) and the sensitivity in the lowest position, it will wipe once and then if it is auto it will not wipe again, if it is the standard intermittent option then it will continue to wipe every few seconds

    just look behind the rear view mirror from the outside and you'll see the sensor.
