Stump the Board! Mulitple issues, wipers, radio, phone, and keyless system

Let me start with saying these issues come and go with no rhym or reason.

1. With the wipers turned off they will start running fast and to turn them off I just turn the nob once then they stop. Sometimes even doing this does not work and I will be driving down the road on a sunny day, which doesn't happen very often, with my wipers running. But since the new issue below showed up my wipers are working great.

2. My keyless entry system stop working. So then I used the mental key and went and open the trunk which I guess resets it. Now that is working fine.

3. Since the reset of the keyless entry my radio now has no sound but my wipers are still working normally. Mute button show up on the screen when it is pushed. There is just no sound coming from it.

4. I kept the Star Tac in its cradle and on but now it will not power on since all this happened.

So any suggestions on how to get the volume back onto my radio, while keeping the keyless system working, and not have my wipers go on whenever they like?

Thanks for the help!!!

Did you just get the vehicle? and have you read your manual thoroughly? they are all un related. unless you have gremlins. when you play you figure it out. the wipers could have been on rain sensor as that would explain the one all of a sudden. Is your radio in phone mode. It sounds like the old chrysler K car turn the lights on and the radio goes off. Start with one problem exclude the others that work from your question and work from there.
That was a great discription, and helps allot. i agree with Oliverk sounds like your sam problem, I feel bad for you because the vehicle sounds like it was a super deal. have you washed it in a car wash or with high pressure water? or drove through a really big puddle lately.
if you get water in the gremlin house aka SAM you have a headache. I only wash mine by hand, there are a few threads in here about this issue.
Did you forget and leave the hand break on? Man I feel for you, you are having a hell of a time with this car, I can see how you are going nuts. Well if your emergency break is going to the floor with no lock up. trace your cable and see if it had snapped and take a good look at your rear disks and pads, just because you have brakes may be just your front ones hook up.
Certain sam's control certain functions, check your fuse functions beside the sam's and see what are in those banks and that will give you an idea from which one is giving the problem? I think that is how they work but not sure. but as ekbenz said disconnect battery before mucking with those. A good tech should be able to check them out pretty fast and see if they are green , corroded and lube if that is the problem cheap. and by asking him to check them he knows that you have some idea of your problem.
