This problem sounds like you have electrical connection issues with the body control or engine control modules. You should first have computer system scanned for codes and then have connections disconnected from control modules and checked for connection issues and add dielectric grease to connections to stop fretting corrosion in connections and see if the problem is corrected. If problem persists then have a mechanic like one from YourMechanic come to you and assist in continued diagnosis of problem.
