Clean the 1/0 battery cable as it attaches to the frame/chassis...undo the bolt and wirebrush the lug and the place where it bolts to...reassemble...check the relays responsible for the windows and locks...radio~ this intermittent conditions lead me to believe that a brown- out condition is occurring tripping relays randomly~.....to review...MAIN ground connection from battery....the relay for the door lock, window and radio power~

I just went through this... the problem with mine was a PURPLE wire in the wire harness where it crosses between the door and the vehicle was broken about 2" from the plug. I reconnected the wire and everything works now...
