I have almost the same problem, but I didn't wash the car yesterday. I was pulling out of my driveway when a stupid Audi came racing around the corner and I had to stop short. All of a sudden, the radio display went blank and the radio played for a couple of minutes more, then it stopped, I don't hear any sound from the blinkers but they are working, the PDC turns on but won't go off automatically and I have no back up lights. Happened just as it was getting dark yesterday and I haven't had a chance to look at it yet. The clock would come on intermittently and each time I started the car the radio would play for a couple seconds. Anyone else experience this strange behavior?
