    OK. Just had this odd thing happen. I washed my 2014 Ram 2500 4x4 Crew Cab and got it all cleaned up. And as I'm blowing it off with a leaf blower that I've done a hundred times before. I kept noticing the wipers creeping up n down like they are on. And after about 15 minutes or so, they come on full up n down. As if I had them on. The issue is this. The truck is off and the keys are in my pocket. And the only way to stop them is to pull the fuse. Anyone know what might have caused this.

    The only thing I can come up with is I got water in the fuse box under the hood when I sprayed the engine off. It doesn't make sense. I pulled the fuse, ran the engine for about 2 hours with a heater blowing on it. And it fixed the problem.

    I'm all for cleainess but with all the sensitive electronics under the hood it's just not a good idea to soak then engine down. So many panels and connectors that just don't need water introduced into them.

    Electronics under the hood? This has got to be the strangest car issue i heard today.
