No gauges, wipers stuck on, can't get out of park
Left jeep (soft-top) in torrential downpour for about 24 hours and thats when i had these problems. (also, for note, radio DID work as well as hazards, but no turn signal and no gauges at all, wipers stuck on)
Went and followed other advice and just reset by unhooking battery and hooking back up. Carried a screwdriver with me for about a day of doing this (as soon as I turn jeep off and left for 5 min., it would revert to no gauges, windshield wipers on, can't get out of park, etc.)
That night and next day I let sit in garage to dry out, and everything is fine again. Somehow, condensation got into the wiring in that rainstorm, and cause all that haywire crap to go on. Not feeling too great that my Jeep has this achilles heel, but live and learn!
