    I have a 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager with 145K miles on it and have a
    few issues I would like to get fixed.

    The first problem we have experienced over the last few years is that
    the front windshield wipers will not operate consistently in the
    intermittent mode. If we use the slow speed or fast speed they work
    OK. But when there is a slight mist and we want to use the wipers
    intermittently (Using the sliding scale on the turnsignal to select
    the proper interval) the wipers will make one swipe and then not work
    again or work out of sequence). We end up having to use either the
    slow speed or fast speed all the time by switching the wipers on and
    off. The wipers do not come on and off unless we turn them on and
    off. (Sounds like a switch problem to me since the Wiper motor seems
    to work in the low and high positions only). Anyone know specifically
    what the problem is and can I get the part to fix it myself? Any
    assistance would be appreciated.

    The 2nd problem my wife has noticed is that the Lift Gate will not
    unlock when we use the remote controls or actually use the key to
    unlock. It is like the lifting mechanism is not making contact to
    allow the liftgate to be opened. Eventually after several attempts it
    will engage and will allow us to open the liftgate as usual. It is an
    intermittant problem now that I know will get worse over time. Anyone
    have any ideas as to what could cause this symptom. Any assistance
    would be appreciated.

    Need to fix these issues as I want to keep the vehicle at least a few
    more years.

    Thanks In Advance for any advice

    Wipers, change the multi function switch (entire turn signal switch assembly)
    Hatch, try cleaning and lubricating the latch
