We left Canada to go on a vacation to southern California, the trip was 3200 kilometres. All of a sudden the wipers went up about 6 inches and stopped without being on. Later did it again. A few more times. We then tried to turn them on and it went half way and stopped. After that it did all kinds of weird thinks from turning on when the switch was off. This problem caused us to have to stop several times during our trip due to raining and snowing. The last day when we finally arrived to palm springs, when I shut the vehicle off, the wipers were on at full speed. I had to disconnect the battery to stop it. I then went on the internet and did some research. Thank goodness for people posting their problems on the internet, I was able to diagnose the problem to the tipm. It appears to be a recurring problem with Chrysler tipm's. and of course this is not a warranty item as the warranty had just expired in June. Totally disappointed with Chrysler's warranty and recall of their tipm's. from what I have read about their tipm problems, it has serious potential for injury. It can quit totally all of a sudden shutting down all power and stopping the vehicle on a busy highway.

"tamara recall" when I'm driving, whether it's hot outside or rainy, my wiper blades would come on for no apparent reason, and stay on for about a min. When I'm also driving, it sounds like there is water running through my car. Once again, even on sunny days I still hear water. I've taken it to the dealership, and expressed my concerns, but I was told that nothing was wrong. It happens often, so there is no specific date. It's been going on for awhile. I totally disagree !

One morning, while driving, I discovered that the lights were on but the switch was on off. The fog and bright lights would not function. The blinkers did not function. The windshield wipers, nor solvent would function. Took the car to the dealer and they had to reprogram the tipm. No explanation as to why it had to be reprogrammed.

Wipers sometimes do not turn on when I need them to. Highly dangerous, I have pulled over in the ran before because my wipers on a four year old car will not engage. Additionally, wipers will turn on randomly sometimes during the day when I don't want them to. Not as dangerous, but still very annoying. Chrysler tipm issue, the same one as previous issue 18 months ago. Wipers turn on randomly, sometimes won't turn on when needed. Replaced the tipm 18 months ago, and Chrysler refused to pay (started a ticket with their national customer care). Issue has returned completely 100% identically as before. I'm bringing it back to the dealership, and I've reopened the ticket. They said they will "see what they can do"
