Default Windshield Wipers act strange.

On my 05' Ram when I put on the windshield wipers they always come on but, sometimes they do random extra wipes. Instead of one wipe It'll do three then back to one then maybe two then one again. What Gives? Now I am familiar with the bad wiper pulse boards in GM's (had to change it in my last truck), but does dodge use a similar setup?? If so where is it located? Or is it something else causing it? Thanks.

i just got my 05 1500 used and i noticed my wipers doing the exact same thing and now sometimes when i hit a big pot hole they will come on even though i didn't touch the switch... but from what i read here it could be connections or the FCM that cost about 200.00.. so if you have any luck let us know!

I so dislike my '09 Ram wipers
works good at a drizzle in the first positions
then the rain picks up a bit more & you go for the next position & it goes so fast that the windshield is never clear
then there are at least 2 more quick speed positions
you would need a radar gun to clock the speed
a vacuum motor would be better functioning, at least you could let up on the gas & it would clear the window for one swipe
