Default My Car is Possessed

Every time I get into my car I have something new happen such as the wipers turn on, the radio turns off, the Air Bag lights turn on, goes into limp mode, a/c wont run (but the heat will). What is going on. Some days its the radio, some days its the wipers, no rhyme or reason. Can anyone help!

Could be fuses or relays. It's hard to tell until a specialists gets into your car.

Thanks! That is what I was afraid of. I am thnking it may be the ignition switch as well. Now when I take the key out the radio won't turn off. the check engine light finally came on, I took it to Auto Zone to have them plug in and they say it won't read it, that the plug is bad, but my cigarette lighter works, so I don't think that it is. thinking a large garbage bin is a better solution.

I have had my '03 S for two months or so now...love the car but there are some little intermittent electrical glitches... like my driver side window works great then dies... then works again. I have learned these are "normal" problems...

I just had my whole car checked and rewired the other week. Solved all the problems.

Hey YarRacing, I just might have to do that.
