also randomly won't start or turn over, dash lights, radio come on but won't crank, not the starter. Seems to be some type of relay problem, no sound at all when key is turned

timer control unit shorts out taking out the dome light,security. and causes the dome,security,lights in door locks to stay on all the time, or not work at all.this timer control is beside the heater fan box and box removal is required to access it ,the timer is behind a rubberized tape in a recess in the body of the car.
