It didn't take very long for the dealership to find it on Kixx's brothers car--so it must be a pretty common thing.

Apparently in a Crysler Town and Country the CD player is some how connected to the windshield wipers.

They were traveling from Houston to Detroit.

Guess how many hundreds of miles they drove, with clear skies........with the windshield wipers on?

my silverado had a wiper recall on it, on my way to work one day the wiper fluid emptied itself onto my windshield on a nice sunny day, and then the wipers continued for the next 30 miles.....I got the recall fixed on lunch time

The whole dashboard went nuts. Gauges quit working, lights came on and off. It was bad news. I started looking into but figure since it was still under warranty and owned by a rocket surgeon, it could be taken to the dealership.

I'm not sure I would have been able to wait for lunch. If the wipers make one swipe after they are needed, I'm on Ryan's case to shut them off. I HATE that sound!
