I was parked waiting for the light to change for 3 minutes when out of nowhere the lights start flashing, horn blaring, wipers running, and could not get it to stop. This has happened intermittently five or six times with varying degrees of length (2 seconds to 30 minutes I took it to gas station and they remove the fuses and charge me $50 told me to take it to the dealer interesting to see that there are others with the exact same symptoms

The first instance of my electrical system going haywire was around July 31, 2014. It was a quick moment that happened while I was coming to a stop. The wipers started going on their own, the horn honked, the windshield fluid started spraying, and my locks started going up and down. It stopped after about a minute then started again in the afternoon for about 5 minutes, until I unplugged the battery. It became an intermittent issue that I would think went away and then would happen randomly. I decided to bring my vehicle to the dealership service dept in October of 2014, where they diagnosed the issue as my needing a new win module. However, after that replacement, the issue continued. The issue happens whenever it feels like happening. Whether the keys are in the ignition and I am driving or if I am sitting in my office building, a distance away from my car, with my keys at my desk. My keys can be in the ignition, or out of the ignition. It doesn't matter. My car does as it pleases, when it pleases. Again, the locks, wipers, and windshield fluid just start going on their own. The horn also goes, but I have removed the horn fuses so I do not honk at random people when I am driving. Some forums say this is a tipm issue. Some say it is an ignition module issue. Some say it has to do with the driver's side door wiring. I have no idea what the reason is. I have spent thousands of dollars "fixing" this issue but it is still happening. Here is a link to a video of the most recent occurrence on 7/28/15.

I received safety recall L25/NHTSA 14V-373 earlier this year advising me of the problem with the ignition key but saying that I would be contacted again by mail with a follow-up notice when the remedy part is available. In June 2015, I received safety recall R03/NHTSA 14V-373 which replaced safety recall L25. On June 10, 2015 I contacted my Chrysler dealer to schedule the repair. They informed me that they had to order the part and when they received the part they would schedule a repair appointment. As of this date, July 27, 2015, I have called them back twice and all they can tell me is that the part is still on order and they do not know when they will receive it.
