Hello, my name is Bobby. Thanks for the question. Did all of these issues start at the exact same time?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes they did

Thank you. It sounds like you have a failure in the body control module. This is very common on this truck. The module fails internally and causes this. It can also be a poor connection in the wiring harness. One common area of failure is under the driver side of the dash by the parking brake assembly. Check the wiring around there to make sure that there is no wear and shorting in the wiring. If that looks fine then it may be the module. Also make sure that the ground connections on the battery negative cable are clean and tight.

The only other spot that I have seen issues with on this truck is under the fuse box under the hood. It is common for some of the electrical terminals to fracture from vibration and cause this. More than likely it is the bcm though.
