The fuel pump relay is an electronic component that is found on virtually all vehicles equipped with an internal combustion engine. It is often found in the fuse box located in the engine bay and functions as the primary electronic switch that controls power to the fuel pump

"Swerves" when you hit a bump, yes... equals failed front suspension component(s). Dodge has terrible record with ball joints but could be other.

Take to a shop and have it repaired, sooner than later.

Check your fuses in the distribution center under the hood along with the interior fuse box. If all fuses are good, I would look very closely at the back side of the under hood power distribution center. These are famous for getting a bit of corrosion at some of the connectors and pulling too many amps and actually melting the plastic housing. Look for any signs of distortion or heat around all of the wires.

Hook up a fuel pressure and see what your pressure is when you start running bad. If it drops down you have a bad pump of line restriction or fuel regulator.

There is not a flasher in the newer dodge trucks. However there is a IPM(integrated power module) It is a solid state non-programable box behind the instrument cluster that controls the blink/emergency lights

In tank fuel pumps have a sock style filter on their bottom that if not there a new pump can burn out quickly. If it is a replacement pump and not the whole assembly like the factory unit the hose from the pump to the housing can come off under pressure and spray all the fuel back into the tank. Lastly, but not to assume things since its easier to pull a tank without fuel in it does it have enough gas to reach the bottom of the fuel pump?

Well, the wire from the fuse goes to the relay in the power distribution center and from the relay to the fuel module. There could be a bad relay, bad fuel pump module or a wire that is grounding to the body of the car causing a short. Check the wiring harness where the wires go into the fuel tank.

I don't know - a call to the dealer would give you the information or you could read the vehicle handbook...

It sounds like you have a faulty park switch in the wiper motor. When it malfunctions, an electric current passes through the windshield wiper even when switched off. Also, bad wiring or a loose connection can also lead to the same outcome, and since the connection is not on par, the wiper may run in the lowest setting.
