This does sound like a faulty stalk,,it may clean up with a switch cleaner

A little different to Merc probably, but I had an XK8 doing the same this week.
The fault was the micro switch in the wiper motor not going 'open' when the motor was in park position. Without this reference the control unit was at sixes & sevens. New micro switch fixed this one.
Easy to check.
Just a thought & I could be miles off!
