Thanks. The solenoid/relay is new (<6 months) as well. But, I know they can be hit or miss from a replacement standpoint. Any recommendations on sourcing a better quality replacement?

I've seen that recall as well - I've seen that it's a known issue, but CRYCO/FIAT doesn't know a fix yet. Is that still the case?

I guess what is tripping me up is the wipers and engine staying on. If it was related to losing hot/the RUN positition, why would the motor and wipers keep working?

Pics for good measure:

Exactly the info I was looking for. I was thinking about getting a set to replace my worn struts and then readjusting later for bigger tires. Looks like I'll just have to remove them.
