Default Weird Wiper Problem (2008)

well - had a weird problem today with the wipers. Went to Wendy's for lunch. Before we came out - I started the truck remotely and let her warm up for a bit. Once in the truck - put the key in, hit the brake (to disengage the remote start mode) - at least I'm pretty sure I hit the brake) - turned the wipers on and tried to wash the windshield. Washing worked ok - so I turned off the wipers just after hitting the wash button.

Normally - when I do this - the wipers go to "auto" after washing - so it swipes the window two times - waits a few seconds - then swipes once more.

Well - when I did this - I had no intermittent wipers, no slow wipers, only panic mode wipers. When turning the switch down from "panic mode" the wiper motor would immedatly lose power - stopping the wipers where ever they were in the cycle.

Came to a stop sign - shut the truck off - wipers reset to bottom position - and everything was fine after that.

Just a really weird problem I thought you all would enjoy.

Yep - I think I'm OK since it went away with a truck restart. It was probably related to the "remote start" mode it was in. I think there's limited functionality to the truck before the key is turned and the brake is depressed (and the remote start is after-market as well).

Yeah, I've heard that the Baconator can cause wiper issues.

HAHA - the bacon deluxe meal with a homestyle chicken go wrap. It may have made me forget to hit the brake before I attempt to turn on the wipers in remote start mode
