Had a friend work on the van and many STRANGE things cropped up. Among them, when I turn the key to accessory or start, the windshield wipers cycle 3 (back & forth) times. When I shut the engine down, the wipers again cycle 3 times.
It was suggested a 'park switch' may be the problem. Don't...
Transmission blew!!! I'm done with this one. Junk yard won't give me a fraction of what its worth! No Surprise.
A/C Compressor less than a year old
Both condensers only a few years old
Radiator few years old
New fuel pump assembly few weeks old! (You believe that!, then the trans goes!)
