my wifes 2007 has a strange issue. when you turn on the rear wiper or the front wiper wash the whole dash cluster starts freaking out and wipers starting jumping like the car is going to stall. When I unplug the washer pump i can operate the front washer without fluid with no cluster issues but when rear wiper operated unplugged it still does it. not sure of wiring for rear wiper and also changed out rear wiper motor already. when pump plugged in both will cause a freak out when operated

Check out your wiring behind the drivers side fender. There is a known issue with the wiring chafing on the inner fender and rubbing thru causing all sorts of shorts like this.

It happened in mine when it was damp, it would short out and the cluster goes crazy.
