Dealership Screwing me
Like an idiot, last winter I left my passenger window half down and recieved 2 days of snow accumulation in the front seats of my Ram. I thawed the truck indoors for 3 days and all was well. Months later the window wipers would not shut off and all warning lights were illuminated. Dealership charged me 350$ saying they traced some wires and all reset. They said it may or may not happen again. Now my ESP/BAS, service 4X4, slip, and park assist is all luminated. I washed the undercarage and no joy on the warning lights. I traced the wires, wiggled them and tryed the old 3 pumps of the gas reset and it didnt work either. This occured 2 months ago, but stopped after 30km of driving. I have drove about 200km and nothing has changed. Before I bring it back, anyone have any suggestions to hopefully save me some money?

Same problem occured on my grandmother 97 F150. She hit a crow while driving and cracked the windshield. Windshield replaced by guardian glass but they did not replace the gasket. Windshield continued leaking down on the fuse panel. The panel contact base rusted, causing power back up in the fuse panel, and the same problems you have. Dealership replaced all dash wiring BCM and fuse panel and four wheel drive engaging electric motor. All where damaged from the shorting and constant in and out engaging. Cost for repair (on guardian glass) and $2100. You may want to an at home inspection along these same lines and check. A little water can due a lot of damage. Best of luck.
