hey how are you

lets start here

at driver door when you open it ,there is wiring harness coming from inside the car to the door , in between the door and car frame ,usually between the hinges ,tear that wiring insulation off the wiring harness and inspect for broken or intermittent wires at that location

sometimes from opening and closing those wires break .

then we go to the connection at the door master switch hit elf look for any backed out pin

Please let me know

Thank You

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It's going to require some electrical testing to determine what you have going on. If you're losing all of these items together then you most likely have a power distribution or wiring issue.

All of these items come and go at exactly the same time?
