Gonna have to agree with this guy ^^^^ (kinda scary!) Sounds like a bad ground, or some frayed wires. Check the firewall to make sure all the grommets are in good shape, and that none of the wires are frayed. Other than that, I got nothin'. Good luck tracking it down.

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!

radio goes out also

My windsheild wipers went out totally (blows new fuses when I turn on the ignition). But before they went out the radio would go out until the wipers finished their arc/circuit.

Buy yourself a Haynes or Klymer manual. You should be able to trace the entire wiper circuit, as well as the common connections to your radio. Sounds Strange???
