Same thing just happened to me this morning. All gauges off, wipers and headlights on even though switched off. I switched the headlight switch on and everything came back to normal. 2010 Wrangler Sport wih 48K miles.

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!

Similar problem

Same issue, only my wipers were not on: no gauges, headlights won't turn off, radio worked, car charger(plugged into the socket) worked, smh... just weird. Disconnecting the positive side of my battery for a min or so worked to get everything working again, but every time I turn off the car to run in somewhere the same thing happened. Took it to a shop and they said it was my TIPM. That didn't make sense so took it to the dealership and they said (amongst other things) that it was my instrumental cluster. Changed out the cluster and everything is back to normal. Hope this helps someone.

My 11 did this twice over 30K miles, did not do it for 20K some miles. My 12 has done it once (18K on the clock now). Just reset and go worked for me.

Now however I have a bigger problem on the 11. Every time I turn the high beams on with the engine running the entire bus goes wacky (head, tail and turn lamps flickering, relays in the TIPM cycling like mad, no gauges and all lights on in the dash with "no bus" message on dash - and engine continues to run after key off AND OUT.

I had a voltage issue and I think a module is now trying to operate under the code of a corrupt file.

I had this same issue with the wipers staying off, cluster out, blinkers out, headlights on. Auto zone says the battery is fine. Grounds looked good to me but I'm not very good with electrical stuff. I bring it to a mechanic and they say it's the TIPM and send me to the dealership. Dealership wants to take me for $1200 so I buy one for $600 (150 core) from Mopar. Put it in, do the 12 second key dance, now the wipers are going but everything else is the same. I bring it to the dealership to get them to flash it with their computer. It's showing it's a diesel so they think it's the wrong part. I convince them that it's the right part. Now they're saying this new TIPM I put in is bad. Should I try to get it replaced? Is it likely that they sent me a bad one and does that jive with these symptoms? Maybe I should take this to mean that it wasn't the TIPM after all?
