Default Bunch Of Varied Electrical Issues-Related? 98 PA

This started last summer when my wipers started working sporadically. More recently the ABS light comes on every time I drive the car, with no consistency. Could be within seconds or after driving 20 miles. Always goes out if I turn the ignition off and restart. Since yesterday I've had a P0107 code with no driveability or starting issues. Also, now and then the DIC loses all the "resettable" info - trip odometer, average MPG, etc. I've checked the battery cables and negative cable body ground, everything is tight, clean and in good condition. I haven't had time to look into it much farther. I did put a new battery in it as the old one was undersized and had some age on it. I'm normally pretty capable of solving my own problems, but don't know this car that well. It does run as well as ever and has so far never failed me.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Is it possible the car got wet at some point? Sounds like you have corrosion problems. I've seen a few cars that had corrosion on the bottom side of the fuse box. I would start there.

Light bulb! I hadn't made the connection with accidentally finding a couple of big puddles on vacation in Florida during a blinding rain. Problems started say, 3 months later.
Thanks...
