Help!! Just tinted my windshield and we think moisture might have gone down into the dash.

    Car started once and acted fine. Five minutes later when tying to start windows would go up and down, headlights flashing, trunk popping. Has anyone seen this before. Gonna let her sit over night hopefully be better in the morning. There's seems to be some computer/electronic device next to front left dash speaker we're guessing that where the problem is. Beware

    Do you have a warm source of dry air you can blow in the car towards the dash? Let it site overnight and try again in the morning. Check your fuse boxes for blown fuses.

    Did you tint it yourself or at a tint/windshield shop? That shop better pick up the bill if they did something

    Nothing has been done to the car. we tried warm air. I think it's getting better. Now the car doesn't act possessed with windows and lights. But still won't start. I check fuses in the morning.

    If he's your friend that long I'm sure he will take care of you until the job is done if it was his doing

    The fuse boxes are in the trunk and under the hood. There are no fuses inside the car.

    Did you mean to say that you tinted the WINDSHIELD? Is this not against the law in your State? As others have said, suggest hot air dryer in the area that has seen the moisture. Good luck.
