Headlight Washer working on its own

On my 10G Prestige the passenger side headlight washer seems to be working on its own. Noticed water dripping down the front bumper the other day. It looks like everytime I use the car at some stage the washer operates but only seems to be one side and I don't have the windscreen wipers active. Surely this is not normal?

3weeks old and its got to go back in next week for diagnostic check to find out why the indicators keep flashing hours after being parked up, so the washers is another thing to ask about

A rare but true case of the gremlins perhaps?

Not sure about on Hondas, but on some cars, they come on with the headlights / screen washers - Fairly sure there is a dedicated switch though?

Either that or someone pissed on your car

yes there is a switch that I have never touched. Read in the manual that the headlight washers activate automatically when the windscreen wipers first come on and the manual button only works when the headlights are on.

Indicators just flashed again as well. Must be someones telly remote changing channel for the nine o'clock news or pizza delivery man ringing someones wireless doorbell
