Has anybody else out there had trouble with there wipers not working?
Twice mine have quit on me while in the rain mode and would not work after that in any mode , until I could get the car off the street and stop and restart it.
After getting it back from dealer it worked for 10 minutes and now quit altogether. Of course it will be getting towed back to dealer as it is raining like all heck out but was wondering if anyone else has had this problem- this is only one of many electrical glitches I have had , but is the most hazardous for me as I live in the Seattle area.

Dirty Tool,
No they did not- I took it in for a multitude of electrical issues- including the wiper problem. I believe they replaced some relay- I just returned from getting back to the shop and they said a modulator was coming this Monday for install. So far I have had both front door lock actuators , the instrument cluster, something to do with the self leveling had to be pulled out and replaced. Also my alarm kept sounding last Friday so they traced it to the Right rear passenger door - something there that was interfaced with alarm probelm. I am becoming more then a little concerned- I bought used less then a year ago- it was a 2001 lease return. Still had the original warranty , so that is making thing a bit easier. It was a certified purchase which really does not mean alot except ya pay more- Right now I am trying to track some history on this vehicle, not sure if my salesman wants to get involved or not. He pass's the email's off to service mgr where car was purchased and it stops there. I am sure they will stay with the repairs until they get it right- it is just a pain in the Butt when your going down the road in good ol Seattle rain and then , I have my moments on the phone with service.
But still wondering if these electrical issues are a burden to anyone else- I have heard from some people if ya get a bad one - dump it???
