2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport Wipers have their own agenda

Front windshield wipers do not turn on when I put them on and sometimes when I put them on they go on.

Try turning on the wipers. If they don’t go on, open the hood and tap on the motor with the handle of a screwdriver. If the wipers come on, the problem is in the motor. If not, the problem may be the switch.
