electrical problems with 2006 Mustang GT

I have 2 problems with my Mustang. The first is an issue with my wipers. When I activate wipers, they work at only 1 speed, fast. Once the wiper is activated, the wiper control becomes completely unresponsive/non functional, it doesn't allow for use of any of the settings nor will it shut the wipers off. Once they are engaged, I'll need to shut the car off at just the right time to catch the wipers in their "position at rest", if I don't time it just right, the wipers keep going.

Regardless of what I do with the wiper control they work at only 1 speed which is fast, once they are on, the only way they can be shut off is by timing them and shutting the car off at exactly the right time which is wipers in their off position.. (wash/wipe/intermittent etc, any position triggers only 1 speed)

Wiper control switch messed up?

I also have a problem with cruise control, once I set it, the car will shut off when trying to adjust speed, usually when it automatically accelerates. The car is tuned with a turbo kit, could that have something to do with it?

Or did the turbo charger cause electrical problems from heat melted wires?

The turbo charger is mounted front and center, right under the alternator, it is close to a box with many wires, not sure what it is.. Is that the comp?

You may have a ground issue in your steering column. Most controls on '05+ work thru data signals which send commands to modules. There is a link in the '05/10 tech forum that has a complete electrical diagram showing the wire color codes and where the ground points and connectors are actually located.
