Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
It sounds as if you have a bus communication issue. The modules all communicate over two, two wire networks. If communication goes down then warning lights will come on for the modules that aren't communicating, the headlights and wipers will come on for safety if the CAN B network goes down. With your combination of symptoms it sounds like both networks are going down.
A short to power or ground on the bus wires will take down communication. This could be a wiring issue or internal failure in a module and it will take in depth testing of the network and modules at the time the problem is happening to determine what is going on. If both networks are being lost at the same time there is a good chance the problem is in the TIPM, the module/fuse box under the hood.
