Wiper buttons and tail light buttons on steering wheel

So my right side buttons have a mind of their own.
2012 King Aire the tail light button sometimes turns on the wipers, the off button sometimes sprays water, and it's like Forrest Gump, you never know what you're going to get. We laugh a lot about this...
Anyone else have this and/or find a resolution?
Thanks

Might be the clock spring. We had issues then nothing worked. Replaced it and like new.

Lots of posts on issues with the " Smart Wheel " in both the Freightliner and Spartan chassis forums .

The wheel mounted switches; communicate , through the wiring in the " Clock spring " so called because the internal wires wind and unwind; like the coil of a clock spring; as the steering wheel turns. The signal then goes to a control module that signals the ( hopefully correct ) requested system to function.

Hope this isn't it

I had an issue with the cruise not working right. It would shut itself off and turn itself back on again at some random time later. The tilt and pedal adjustment wouldn't work sometimes. A 3 week long story short - they replaced the clock spring on Spartan's recommendation but it turned out to be the smart wheel buttons instead. They replaced the whole center of the steering wheel and it works again. $1500. Good luck.
