Every time it rains hard my vehicle won't start and if it does the wipers and radio will not operate when I put in reverse or drive. I took it to the dealership and they told me that it was the right side windshield seal. I asked them if this was a manufacture defect and they said no that it was the shifting of the glass when I run over bumps. The same thing was happening to a F-250 P/U when I took my vehicle in. They told me that they would have to replace the fuse box, gear module, rear wiper motor. I don't believe bumps would cause this to happen and from the sound of it, it appears to have been happening for a good while because they told me at the service department that there was mold in the gear module. I am afraid that if it rains and I am on the road that my truck might just turn off or my wipers might short out. The estimated cost for all repairs is about $1000.
