The vehicle was struck by lightning July 2014 when it was parked under a tree during a bad storm. It eventually was declared a total loss by progressive insurance after they attempted several times to have all the electrical components repaired. Several times they repaired it and put me back into the dangerous vehicle which was accelerating on its own and several times would not brake. I insisted they declare it a total loss before something terrible would happen. They finally agreed in October 2014. However, my concern is that I was told the vehicle was sold at auction and that puts someone else in danger. The vehicle should not of been handed over to someone else.

Windshield wipers turn on and off erratically. Headlights turn on and off erratically. Gauges don't work, can't open or close side and rear door. This is due to the tipm not functioning properly

Instrumental cluster lights turn on, all dial indicators go to 0, wipers turn twice, outside lights turn on and then off, and warning beeps inside. Can repeat different frequency time, but usually every few seconds. Some warning lights remain on, especially brake warnings and airbag. 2 dealers reviewed and recognized issue but stated did not know what to do. Rarely, after start-up only brake light and airbag warnings stay on and no other light issue. First dealer replaced instrument cluster and improved by no left dial issue, but warning lights still occur. All warning lights, center dial, and right dial, lights, and wiper issues still occur. Dealer checked and noted programming issue but informed nothing can do. Now occurs more often. All brake warning lights now always show after beginning to drive. Then all other warning lights, and so on, begin as noted. Recorded and attached. Frequency has increased. If I turn outside lights on, lights will not turn off when issue occurs but turn signal still stops when I have them on. Other drivers then do not know if I am turning. Airbag, brake, fuel lights, wipers, and outside lights worry me since everything shows warning or stops while driving, as frequent as every few seconds during entire drive. Is one of the issues real or are they all pretend due to the vehicle issue? occurs all speeds, temperatures, and so on.
