Thumbs down cold start gremlins

Howdy! Well I have a dumb problem, when it gets below freezing and i start the truck with either the remote or key i have no dash, or interior lights, i do have the radio and heater. The wipers are going even tho the switch is off and i cant control them. until the truck warms up for 20 minutes then everything kicks in and goes back to normal. any ideas where to start on this one? thanks guys and girls!!

I think the first place to start would be the dealership
That's a strange one.

I have an appointment tomorrow but thought if anyone had this typr of issue before it would be helpfull to tell the dealer. I hope this isn't going to be a witch hunt ha ha and they figure it out. They said they might keep my truck so I dunno we'll have to wait and see I guess.

Default Control module

Sounds like a control module malfunction. It controls the automatic headlights, dims when signaling and all your wipers and signal lights. I know they had alot of problems with them in the 2006-08 models with moisture. We have had to replace them on 2 of our trucks at work. Hope this helps.

Well it seems like the problem was a lost communication between the dash and the computer. they cleaned and tightened the connections for now which fixed the issue while I wait for my new replacement dash. They're even going to change my wipers. Right on dodge service!!

Thats awesome that they found the issue so quick, and that they are replacing the wipers! I'd still take that as a sign to move somewhere warm
