    Check that all the wires are plugged in tight, not worn through or pinched or damaged.. Make sure the grounds are in good shape. Could possibly be a bad relay too, but I'd bet on wiring or grounding issues.

    If you have had any engine work done lately, check the ground wire to the left of the distributor. It is located on the lower bolt of the Thermostat housing. This should clear up the tach issue (rev counter). As for the wipers you need a new switch (which is the lever sticking out from the left of the steering colum.

    sounds like you have a serious short in the column. did you pinch any wires when you put the colum back together if so electrical tape and a test probe light are going be your new found freind. good luck. if your not sure of what your doing don't be to proud to get help for air bags hurt when deployed.
