I have a 97 intrepid 3.3 129000 miles. Its a great car but loaded with electrical problems. The blinkers vary in speed from extremely fast normal, also they work with the ignition off and key out. The hazards work fine tho. Also after I shut the car off the radio(aftermarket) lights keep turning on and off. I learned if I turn on the wipers after I shut the car off the radio stays off. When I do that the wipers go a half of a swipe then stop, even if the car has been off for hours. The radio has been in for a long time and it never did that so I don't think its the radio. Once I start the car and turn the wipers on the delay doesn't work and they keep wiping for a few seconds then work normal. Also during that time if I shut them off they just stop instead of going back to resting position. I'm not sure when all this started happening but before this the headlights and high beams weren't working right and the blinkers would randomly stop working. I had replaced the flasher, headlight switch and the turn signal unit in the steering column with used ones from a totaled car in my shop and it fixed those problems, then a few months later I started noticing this. Please help, if I forget to turn the wipers on at night I usually wake up to a dead battery and it sucks. If I could fix this the car would be mechanically perfect.
