Default Spontaneous door locks, and wipers!???

There has to bean electrical problem with my 98 OBS. 2 weeks ago, twice in one day, I was stopped at a traffic light. Then the doors lock, and unlock and the door ajar light come on and of a few times. I thought that was wierd, and I made sure I didn't punch any buttons on the keyless remote.



Today, I am driving 30MPH, and the wiper goes across the window once. All by itself. The Ole' Lady looks at me and i made sure the lever was in the off position, and it was. This has me stumped!



I did search the first time I had this problem 2 weeks ago, and nothing come up, so I thought it might have been a radio interference, but i don't think this would happen in 3 different situations.



Any clue?



I hate to think of shorts, maybe it could be the grounds?



I also have a 93 Impreza I've put 215,000 miles on, and I never had an occurance like this.



Is there a paranormal section?



Any words of advice is nice!



Max

The door issue could be bad wiring where the harness goes from the chassis to the door. VW's are known for this and a work mate actually had it happen. When we opened the rubber boot up (it covers the wires in the hinge area) we found a few broken wires that would touch and make weird stuff happen.

As to the wipers, do you have signs of water getting into the car? Especially near the firewall??

My 95 Legacy has the spontaneous door issue once in a while. No idea what causes it, though.
