Default ABS light on & front wipers wont turn off

Hi to all,
I am back here again for your help. I have a 2006 56 reg Chrysler PT Cruiser limited, 2.4 auto, I brought the car in October 2016, at that time the central locking did not work from day one,
But 2 days ago, 3 minutes in to my trip, and my ABS warning light came on with a bong, and my front wipers started on their own and wont stop while the car is running, I have tried all of the fuses, checked the wiring used loads of WD40, checked all of the wheel speed sensors, and all are ok, But every time I start the car the ABS light is on and so are the front wipers.
Could it be my PCM / TIPCM ?
Also on several trips, all of my dash lights would come on while driving, and they would stay on until I turned the car off.
Cheers
Jason

This sounds like the multi-function switch. That could cause the wiper and dash light issue. The ABS light may or may not be related. First, tell us more what you mean by "central locking".

I'm guessing he means the remote keyless entry.

It could mean that the power locks, remote or push button, don't work.

Hi
With my central locking, when you press the lock button on the key fob/remote it arms the alarm but no doors lock, and if you press the lock rocker switch on the driver and passengers door, nothing happens. I looked for the RKE module, and its not in the same place as on the mk1 Cruisers.

Last time I had similar issue turned out to be water in one of the connectors under the car near the drivers kick panel. Don't know exact. Never found a water leak.

Had this on both my PT and Jeep!

Thanks Jason.

The one item that impacts all these things in a 2006 PT is the "Body Control Module". And it is integrated into the instrument cluster. You can try resetting the module by disconnecting the battery from both terminals, touching the two batter cable ends together and then waiting about ten minute before hooking them back up. It's very easy to do and worth a try.

Beyond this, it could be any of the things already discussed affecting the BCM. Ironically, I believe a dealership service department could quickly identify a faulty BCM by just hooking the car up to their diagnostic system.

You may want to read about this in the service manual I've uploaded a copy to my Google Drive. Here's a link.

It should be noted that while I am an ASE Certified Master Automotive Tech, I primarily work as a Safety Engineer among other things and I haven't worked as a professional mechanic since I was young strapping lad with long sexy flowing hair before college. And even then, I mainly worked on big trucks and heavy equipment. Nowadays, I enjoy working on these funny looking little cars for fun and relaxation.

Thanks for that info,
I thought the BCM was built in to the fuse box under the bonnet, No wonder I could not work it out, at least I now know Where to look.
The worst bit is I had just paid to have the cam belt water pump and new radiator fitted, then my wife fitted new rear shocks,, new anti roll bar bushes and links front and back and front lower wish bones both sides, and we were just on our way to the mot centre, when the problems started.
