HAVE BEEN HAVING MANY ISSUES WITH WINDSHIELD WIPERS STOP WORKING ALL OF A SUDDEN AND SOMETIMES DO NOT WORK FOR DAYS. WITH NO WARNING WINDSHIELD WIPERS WILL STOP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE WINDSHIELD AND STUTTER. WHILE ATTEMPTING TO ROTATE WIPER SWITCH THEY MAY MOVE A LITTLE AND IF YOU TURN THEM OFF THEY WILL CONTINUE TO STUTTER ACROSS WINDSHIELD. SOMETIMES THEY WORK NORMAL. I HAVE BEEN DOING A LOT OF RESEARCH AND THIS ISSUE IS ALL OVER THE INTERNET. CHRYSLER APPARENTLY REFUSES TO ADMIT THERE IS AN ISSUE WITH A FAULTY TIPM. TODAY I EXPERIENCED A TOTAL POWER FAILURE WHILE DRIVING. EVERYTHING STOPPED WORKING WHILE DRIVING....NO WIPERS, TURN SIGNALS, HEADLIGHTS, BRAKE LIGHTS, INSTRUMENT PANEL. PULLED INTO A PARKING LOT AFTER ALMOST GETTING REAR ENDED WHILE TURNING. TURNED CAR OFF RESTARTED A FEW TIMES AND THEN EVERYTHING STARTED WORKING EXCEPT WIPERS. SOMEONE IS GOING TO GET KILLED IF THIS ISSUE IS NOT ADDRESSED!!
