Default Electrical problems

Has anyone else here had a problem were the rear indicator will not work
even with a new bulb?

The dealership is going to look into it later today but it would be nice to
know if there is a history of this

Also odd one - when i release my P. brake my windshield wipers move

Rear indicator as in turn signals? brake lights? tail lights?

I had a similar thing happen when I wired up my new radio I blew a fuse that set out the dash lights and my rear tail lights.

There is no such thing as a "rear indicator". So you'll have to be a little more specific as to what you are having a problem with.

"turn signal" Everyone calls them indicators around here.

Took it into the dealership anyway - sounds like the indicator stick and a electrical switch was the issue.

Will find out for sure when the parts make it in from Toronto.

Umm, ok. So you're saying "the". There are two. Are you saying one of the rear turn signals isn't working. Or both aren't working?

If the front signals still work, then it isn't the multifunction switch (thats the stick...). Have you actually changed the bulb?
