The sound is a new one.  Haven't seen anyone with that issue before. 

The wipers are a click, hold and drag manipulator.  Are you doing this, or just clicking in the different positions.  We actually just tested this yesterday, and it's working.
Are you sure you're trying to engage autopilot.  You're using the switch on the centre pedestal, yes?  You need to hold it for at least 2 full seconds.  You also need to have an autopilot mode armed.  Preferably altitude and heading.  If altitude is armed, make sure you have an altitude dialled in the alt select window.

We'll check the hdg select.

When you first start the engines of the Saab, heading and VS are armed.  This is a Saab thing.  Those 2 modes are always armed, until the pilot arms a different mode.  
If everything works, but you still can't engage the autopilot, then you are definitely doing something wrong.  Either that, or you're engaging something other than the autopilot.  
So before we continue to troubleshoot this, let's confirm the autopilot.  Are you click and holding, for at least 2 seconds, the switch in the image below...

There is quite a bit of documentation we included with this aircraft that will also answer these questions!
