in the shop with less than 1k miles on the clock

ok, so i bought my 2010 jk unlimited sport about 10 days ago. yesterday i go to get in and it starts fine, but the dash doesn't move or illuminate, the wipers are going max speed while in the off position and it wont recognize the brake signal so it wont come out of park!! I have less than 1k miles on it and it's already in the shop!! It's all getting fixed by Jeep under warranty, but i was wondering if ya'll had any incite as to what the problem might be or if this has happened to anybody else.

the service writer this morning said that they have seen this before but didn't elaborate. I'll see if i can squeeze more info out of him when i got up there tomorrow.

Sounds like a jacked up ECM/PCM to me. Computer is all berzerk. Either that or a couple of wires shorted/pinched together in the wiring harness for the CanBus from factory assembly (maybe you bought the friday afternoon jeep!).

My sig is HUGE in Japan
