Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It sounds as if you may have a bus communication issue. If the bus is down then the lights and wipers will come on for safety. At the same time you should also notice all warning lights come on since the instrument cluster isn't able to communicate with other modules.

Are you seeing warning lights come on?

What was the reason for replacing the alternator?
