Without warning the body control module shorts out draining the battery and damaging the multi-control switch on the steering column. Causing the headlights, interiorlights, running lights, windshield wipers, factory electric door locks, and dashboard lights to fail. This can cause a fire resulting in a total vehicle loss or loss of lighting at night while driving causing the driver to loose sight of the road. In rain conditions loss of wipers during driving would cause loss of visibility creating a dangerous driver on the road.

When you activate the rear window washer, the front windshield gets sprayed too! you must wipe the windshield immediately so you can see!!!. also, the same problem happens when you use the windshield washer; the rear window sprayer is activated. This situation is only an inconvenience and waste of washer fluid. Dealer has ordered a new washer fluid pump, under warranty.
