the check guages light is instructing you to do just that. is the brake warning light or something coming on as well?

pick up a shop manual for it.

wiper motor is bad?

is it just one door lock switch thats bad or all of them? might just be a bad door switch or master switch.

keep in mind you are dealing with a 21 year old vehicle.......

When you step on the brakes does the charging voltage or oil pressure drop?

For the wiper motor twist the main connector at the motor back and forth with the wiper switch in the on position. If it starts working Than the motor is fine and its a connection issue. If that doesn't work tap the metal part with the plastic end of a screwdriver. If it starts working than the motor is probably bad. If that doesn't work run a jumper wire from the metal part of the motor to the ground side of the battery. If it starts working than its a bad ground which is usually where the motor is bolted to the firewall.

Do you here anything when you push the button for the locks?

the oragne check gages comes on then the red brake light comes on but it stopps fine even with a boat loaded with a ton of junk noting is out the ordanary with it..as for the wipers they are hooked to a circut board that doesnt seem to work if you directly hook the battery to the motor it works fine, might just jury rig a 3 speed toggle to it and call it good.. as for the locks they do lock/unlock but the button has to be pushed a buncha times.. fix a day drive an hour...

Sounds like there is an issue with the brakes maybe? Is it low on fluid, are they leaking, have you taken a good look at them?

It the cicuit board looks like this or simular

Check the solder joints on the backside

These two solder joints are real common to fail

Resoldering these joints will usually fix them!

the brakes are a little stronger in the front, and yes they were just completly re-done 400miles ago.. the circut board looks like that but its straight. ill go look around the junkyard this afternoon and look for one that might work.. thanks for the help!!!

    • This is great... I barely finished my '17 Yetti and now its already outdated.
    •   I'm on my second copy, the binding is not very good and before you know it pages begin to fall out, but as far as explaining technique, meat handling safety, use of curing salts and spices I think the book is a great resource.  I've given several copies to friends.  As far as the recipes, they are somewhat standard, but the same can be said for many other sausage books or online sources. I seem to make personal changes (like increasing garlic and black pepper) to most sausage recipes plus I sample a pattie to access the seasonings and will adjust if needed. I do think the amount of added fat is a little heavy handed for me, I find ground pork butt to perfect for me.  I prefer to make my own seasoning mix, and use very fresh spices... We order 3 times a year from spice companies to keep everything fresh, I only buy spices from the grocery store in an emergency, there is no guarantee of their freshness. 
    •   Auu, great plan. Oh by the way. Those aren't nails sticking through the roof sheeting is it? You may find a Shishkabob bird some morning if they get to running each other around in there!
    •   Auu, since it's not a Faith based discussion it should be pretty easy for you both to use humanist science facts to come to the same conclusion and agreement. Carry on!  
    • If our politicians were serious about reducing the cost of healthcare  they would be addressing the big pharma companies.   Check this out: http://wendellpotter.com/2016/03/the-lobbyist-who-made-you-pay-more-at-the-drugstore/    In my simple view of the world all that would be needed is a law passed saying the pharmaceutical companies could not charge more than 10% for the same drugs as is being charged by the next highest countries cost.  That would save Trillions over a 10 year period ( Caveat, I made that number up, but you get the idea )
