The vehicle having this issue was a 2006 Chrysler Pt Cruiser. My front windshild wipers stopped working. I took it into the Chrysler Dodge dealership, jackson mi and found the tipm, totally integrated power module was defective and needed to be replaced at cost of $906. I found on the internet this is a common problem on Chryslers. It is at the dealer getting repaired. I feel a recall of this is needed.

Wiper problem #7
The car involved is a 2006 Chrysler Pt Cruiser. The VIN of this vehicle is 3A4FY48BX6_. Wife left house at 4:45pm (near dusk) during rain. She got 2 1/2 miles away, phoned and said wipers on 2006 Pt Cruiser had stopped working. Went to meet her on side of road and drove car back to house, her in front of me with our flashers on, while the rain had slacked, but not completely stopped. The wipers will come on very slowly and eventually stop, if I jiggle the wiper control and turn signal at the same time. I've checked the internet and it seems like this is a common problem for this vehicle. I do believe this warrants a recall, as this could lead to a very serious or deadly accident. I don't know how many compaints it takes before something is done, but it needs to be done soon. I haven't taken this car to a mechanic yet as we have our old Ford pickup to drive on rainy days, thank god!!!!!. This wiper problem happened on Wednesday, December 21, 2011.

The vehicle was a 2006 Chrysler Pt Cruiser. The VIN of this vehicle was 3A4FY58B56_. I have an 2006 chry Pt Cruiser. The front wiper power module has gone out on the front windshield wipers.

Wiper problem #10
The car involved was a 2006 Chrysler Pt Cruiser. Over the past three weeks the front wipers have been working intermittently, this morning they stopped completely. They froze in the on/up position blocking my view while driving. They did creep their way down and are currently stopped about 1/4 of the way up on the windshield. I am concerned that they won't work on one of our many rainy days in oregon, luckily today is a dry day. The failure date was 02/01/2011.
