Has anyone experienced issues with the windscreen Auto Defogging System? For those unfamiliar, this is the small rectagular sensor at the top of the windscreen by the rear-view mirror on the driver's side. It detects moisture on the inside of the windscreen and instructs the front defogger to blow hard until the mositure clears.

This has been kicking in at random and totally inappropriate times (i.e. no moisture on windscreen), often running at full pelt for an entire journey. I've tried follwoing the reset procedure as detailed in the maual (hold down front defog button for ~8 seconds) and have now had to disabled it (hold down front defog button for ~5 seconds).

I think the sensor must have developed a fault. Would this sort of issue would be covered by the standard warranty?
