You have a short somewhere in the steering column wire harness and probably in your power windows too. Multiple items are often on the same circuit. Since you know which switches are at fault, start there.

There are a lot of wires in the steering column and the insulation on some of them is probably damaged. Fix that and see if it solves the problem.
