    If it works when you short the wire from the ignition switch to the battery wire then you have a problem in the ignition switch and circuit. Possible fusible link. Your original statement only referred to wipers and battery light coming on There was no mention of starter problem

Battery light, ABS light, and Oil light flashes on and off when driving the car. Dash lights,front marker lights, and tail lights will not come on until the car is warmed up.

Electrical problems are hard to fix. You need a voltage test for the charging system and a battery test.

The oil light, abs light, are not hooked up to the turn signals. Never heard of balance of lights coming on in that manner.

The heater fan, headlights, and wipers will slow if the charging system can not keep up. Battery light is accurate to show discharge.

Trans shifts can be affected by voltage. Some transmissions use electric solenoids to shift and they mix voltage to get different gears.

When the weather is really hot, say 88 to 100 degrees, my 2005 Armada goes haywire. Meaning while I'm driving, the lights start to blink and the frond and rear windshield wipers start moving. I

I have not heard of an identical problem. There are several ways to go to attempt a repair. If it were me, I woud first look at a control or area which has both controls for the wipers and controls for the lights.

There is but one choice. If your car has "stalk" controls on the turn signals, intergrated with wiper controls and lights, all are in the stalk control assembly. Plastic and metal have different expansion rates. It is possible for the closely packed contact points to shift and short circuit.

Now for instance on other Brands, wiper controls randomly turn on when a turn signal is activated. Sometimes hitting a bump will make wipers go on without using a turn signal. That is a more common problem. But it illustrates that this does happen.

You can get free wiring diagrams at after registering your vehicle. You can also get diagrams at This may be a problem as some Foreign models may not be listed, but try anyway.

What is vague is which lights are flashing? Is it turn signals, the high beam? as those are functions in the turn stalk. But dashlights are not.

Now another device that makes lights flash, but not the wipers, is the Antitheft. Look at your wiring diagrams to see how this is wired.

Although it may sound weird, have a complete battery and charging system analysis, free at big autoparts stores like Autozone. You just can't imagine the strange problems that arise from shorted batteries.

Worthy of mention are the Relays in the powerboxes. The Powerbox layouts are also available from the sites I mentioned. It is less likely because the physical separation between Relays is much greater than in the turn signal stalk where everything is compressed.

I hope my solutions are helpful.

ck fuses for wipers and rear wiper, the signal flashes fast most likely because theres a bulb out, turn on the hazard lights and see which bulb is out.

On a 2002 dodge ram 1500 truck the brake lights and the turn signals and winshield wipers dont work the only brake light that works is above the cab. and the turn signal flashes on the dash like they are...

I suspect a bad multi function switch located in the left hand side of the steering column. This switch controls your high/low beams/wiper delay/windshield washer/turn signals and hazards.

No rear turn signals, front turn signals light but dont flash

the problem is a bad flasher. $10.98 at advance auto. remove panels under steering wheel with 9/32 socket. It is hard to see turn blinker on to confirm it should tick each time. should take about 1/2 hour.
