#1 - Windshield Wiper/washer Switch problem of the 2005 Dodge Ram 1500
A very dangerous problem with my 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 pick-up is occurring on a daily basis when I use the turn signal - windshield wiper - high beam " multi-switch". When trying to signal a left turn by pushing down on the "multi-switch" lever(left turn signal flashes two or three times then right turn signal activates uncommanded) if I try to engage the right turn signal some times it won't signal / flash at all. My truck only has 46,000 miles on it, not a good testimate for Dodge. I read in a Dodge repair website / forum that a lot of the same problems are occurring with the Dodge ram pick-ups and Mini vans. (all years) is there a recall or will a recall be considered in the near future?

The car involved is a 2006 Dodge 1500. Vehicle identification number (VIN): 1D7HA18N36_. The problem started a few months ago, but I thought it had corrected itself. The past few weeks it has been a constant problem and will not stop. When turning the wipers on mist, they do not work. I have to switch it to the next setting to make them move. The blinkers are either working intermittently or not at all. When turning left, the right one comes one, both flash and stop or it will switch from one to the other.
