84 300D Gremlin
My 84 300D is having some strange electrical issues. I think there a ground problem. When I start the car the windshield wipers cycle once and also when I turn off the ACC the wipers cycle. Is there a common ground that may be going bad,

One of mine does that, but only on cold mornings. WHunter has been working on one with a similar sounding problem, but has not solved it yet. I am pretty sure that the problem on mine is from the ignition switch, but I have not changed it yet. Benzmac, a long time ago, said it was due to a weak battery, but that ain't it.

I've had this for close to 7 years and have been just living with the problem. The new part is having them cycle when I turn off the ACC. I was thinking ignition switch also before the new symptom. The wipers also cycle occasionally when I sound the horn.

I should have said, my wipers cycle on startup when it is cold, and occasionaly on shutdown. Mine symptem is not related to ACC though. WHunter had a secondary symptom, but I do not remember what it was.
