Have you recently installed a new radio or other aftermarket accessory? If so, start looking there first for a bad ground connection. Also, check your fuse box for a blown fuse. Check them all. Sometimes when a fuse blows it will disrupt other circuits by allowing current to "bleed" through to other parts of the vehicle. One other possibility is check for water leaks. If eater from rain, the carwash, etc. gets in where it shouldn't that can create a short. Water is a good conductor. HTH. - Jim
