Same thing happened to me and it was just a loose ground wire in the engine compartment. The cruise control, a/c and horn also wouldn't work whenever the wipers stopped.
The ground is way over at the left side (your left when standing at the grill looking in) on the firewall, behind the battery. I just tightened that bolt and the problem has never come back.
Hopefully, that's all it is for you!
