A module went bad in my 2012 Dodge Charger. The wiper blades were stuck on high, full speed, even with the control set in the off position. The night time lights would stay on, even with the dial set to auto, in the middle of the day. I was told by my dealership, that the part was on "national back order and that there was no eta on when the part would be in." My dealership has left me stranded, with no loaner vehicle and no solutions.
