Once a link goes bad it doesn't repair itself. They can have a intermittent connection though and cause things to work intermittently. Links carry a good amount of current and supply power to a lot of things tied to them.

intermittent problems are usally caused by a bad or corroded ground connection

Fuel tank is a subaru thing (and happens on other cars too). You need to remove the senders and clean them with a hard pencil eraser (tried a soft one, it didnt work),

The wiper can be a bad internal switch in the wiper motor, or a bad ground. Run a new grounbd for the motor and see if it works first, Of course there is the possability that you have it on intermitent.
