What does ODC stand for or is that just an ironic misspelling of the acronym OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder)?

I can't help with the wipers but you should take a look at the power mirror switch and maybe hose it down with contact cleaner.

Not so fast. The oxygen sensor may be fine. You could have a mixture problem in one cylinder that the sensor is trying to compensate for. The sensor takes an average of all 4 cylinders. So one lean cy ...
