A bad battery may cause stuff like this. I've had 2 batteries on two separate vehicles that went bad and made the car act very strangely. If you havent tried the battery, I would start there.

Hello everybody!
i hope I’m posting correctly but I’m in need of some kinda guidance! I really just got into challengers just always have loved how they looked but never got my own.. So i have a 2013 Dodge Challenger R/T Plus, and it literally has a mind of its own SOMETIMES! When I’m driving along (could go a couple of days without doing it) all the dash board lights will illuminate.. The ABS light, The brake light, it will say service park assist system. Pretty much every light that can come on the dash will come on! Then when you turn off the car it will not start UNTIL you give it like 2 hours then it will crank right up and you won’t have the issue anymore for another few days (who knows) I replaced the alternator and battery thinking i was losing charging but unfortunately this did not help! Has anybody had this issue and what was the problem? My car runs like a dream so I’m hoping it can be fixed! PLEASE HELP

On the passenger side rear wheel well there's wires by the inside wheel I accidentally damaged mine once and all those lights came on I had to resplice them and tape them or I could have just put in a new wiring harness, I would guess somewhere and they are rear wiring harness there's a short.

Is there a history of water damage to the car? Often waterlogged cars are dried out and seem fine but issues show up years later as corrosion starts to take it's toll.

Hello! Have them check the ABS module. It has several sylinoids that control several things on the car. I have had experience with this. If you need more help just ask.
