New battery - no wipers when stationary

Following the installation of a new battery in my 2009 model, my wipers will not activate (using the wiper stalk) while the car is stationary. A soon as the car is in motion, the wipers are fine. Everything else appears to be functioning normally. Being new to Touareg ownership, I would appreciate any ideas. Thanks in advance, Dennis

Dennis, make sure the hood is shut, is the MFD showing hood open? Maybe try opening and re shutting. Wipers will not work if hood is open but might when driving

Could also possibly be the hood latch sensor if hood is closed.
