Ignition switch

I got a few gremlins that I'm sure are tied to my ignition switch. But my question is has anyone ever seen this issue in other cars?

My Chrysler 300M is developing some gremlins. I usually don't park the cars too close together, but I'm wondering if it caught something from the Porsche.

The other day I was in a drive thru and I put on the parking lights as I do when behind someone in line. Then the headlights starting flashing. Not in a pattern, just randomly blinking on and off. Also when I shut down the car my locks seem to do a little dance and lock and unlock a couple times. Can a Chrysler catch something from a Porsche?

No but pretty sure your box can catch something from that Chrysler. Chryslers are super notorious for terrible electrical reliability.
