Hello, thank you for writing in. It sounds like you are having multiple electrical issues pertaining to several different systems. When this is the case you will want to check into the charging system first. This means the alternator and the battery. Make sure its connections are clean, dry, and tight. Make sure both are grounded properly, and that they are supplying the fuse box with power. Then make sure the fuse box is working correctly, and that its output voltages are within acceptable range. You may also then need to turn to the BCM and make sure it has not failed. For more diagnostic help, contact our service department to schedule an appointment.
