wipers and heated seats not switching off?

newbie here, so please go easy on me if I ask something dumb!

Picked up my Alfa GT 1.9JTD 2005 yesterday, and I notice that the wipers and the heated seats don't switch off with the ignition. Lights, stereo etc are all fine, but the car can be locked and the wipers still going!

Obviously this could quickly drain the battery, so I want to check if it has happened to anyone else. Can't find anything in the searches...

As for the rest of the car, touch in pen is ordered and the drivers door card is loose along the bottom but otherwise all is well - well, the suspension clunks a bit but that looks like a common issue(s). Moreover I am enjoying the car - all the pace of my 4.3 V8 Merc I just sold but half the cost of fuel!

all help / laughter appreciated

I'm guessing someone has run a direct live to bypass and dodgy connection somewhere. Have a look for non factory looking wiring around the battery and start from there.
