Wipers sweep every time I hit brights, WTF???

I've got a new-to-me '11 F350 SRW Lariat, and every time I hit the bright/dim stalk for the headlights, my wipers sweep. I've tried the wiper switch in many different positions but every time I hit the brights, wipers sweep no matter what. Anyone run into this before? Any idea where my problem might be?

Thanks in advance!

No idea what the problem is. I laughed when I read it though. My best friend had a 79 F-350 that did the same thing.

my guess is that when you do it , you are pushing the washer switch in a bit. that's how i clear mist with my 08, i just give the switch a small tap and they swipe but with no washer fluid.
