The electrical went wacky on our Tahoe several years ago. Most annoying is that the windshield wipers often work when it is not raining - come on on their own, in fact... and they almost never work when it's pouring hard. Awesome.

I hear you. These old electric systems can be frustrating. I spent about 3 hours trying to figure out why my turn signal wouldn't work only to find that it had come partially unplugged. To make matters worse it was on the next to last day of the month and my safety inspection was about to expire.
