Check Battery for loose connection. Or your clock spring is bad like mine. 2 years now and I have one on order. Now the wipers do whatever they want and so do the headlights.

Id say check your battery, the terminal may be loose/the battery is going bad. If the battery is going bad, itll cause mass chaos in your rig. If you have the tools, try disconnecting the battery for a few minutes.

If that doesnt fix the issue... you could have a bad TIPM

Definitely sounds like DW. This happened to my 08 JKU for the first time about 6 months ago after having the tires rotated. Fortunately it was just a slightly bent wheel. Once that was corrected I got a balance and alignment and no death wobble since... 🤞🤞

That situation is actually called a shimmy not DW. DW is not speed sensitive and not tire/wheel related.

And how do shimmy or DW cause hazard and interior lights to just randomly come on? *boggle*

Was any sign of an issue prior? Did this all start at once? Do you have a Check Engine light?
