Welcome to the forum Lee.
Have you had a chance to check the fuses, to see if any are blown?
I find when looking at these fuses it is hard to tell if they are blown.
I use a VOM to confirm if the fuses are in good working order.

Seen loose connections at the body control module(passenger side under the radio behind the kick panel) cause weird issues. Wiggle the harness at the connectors is a good way of inducing the problem to find it. My question is has any recalls been done recently? I now of at least one for a brake lamp malfunction and that involves the body control module connectors.
