    Does anyone know what the red wire with black stripe under the dash leading to ignition switch do??

    I accidentally tapped into it & it touched a ground while hot. No fuses are blown but now my wipers & radio refuse to work!

    Check the relays too. My 03 had some relays and I thought 1 was for the radio and wipers can't remember for sure though.
