My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

One common component that can cause a fault like this here is an issue with the electronic ignition switch itself.It can fail to send signals intermittently which will power down certain components like this here.I have also seen issue with the body control module computer cause intermittent faults like this as well.If you have not had the fault codes checked/read out this should be done to see if any codes are set and if any are set they need diagnosed to locate and repair this issue.

This needs done with a fully compatible scan tool plugged into your model to check these codes as some of the cheaper scan tools are only able to read engine and transmission codes.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
