The wipers and radio sometimes won't work until about five minutes after having started the engine. What could be the problem here? The malfunction always includes both the wipers and radio simultaneously. I live in Seattle, and cannot drive when the wipers won't work! Many thanks.

The only thing common among the components listed would be the ignition switch. Check fuse # 9 and # 15 for battery voltage when the wipers fails to work. Most probably the mirrors could not be adjusted as well. The power sockets, clock and heater seat (if equipped) would not be functioning as well.
