Default Traction control light/ multiple electrical issues

My traction control light in the dash comes on as soon as the car is started and stays on. My sunroof won't work and neither will my remote door locks or the courtesy lights.
You know when you open your door and they all are supposed to come on, nothing. Also I noticed when arriving home tonight that the ring that surrounds the outside keyhole (on both doors) is flashing it'* really dim not bright like it usually is. All the fuses look good. What'* the deals guys and gals. Some help please!!!

I'm assuming these symptoms happened suddenly? Has any work been done on the car recently? Has there been a lot of rain in your area recently? I'm thinking all these problems may have a common denominator. Hang tight, others will chime in shortly.

Sounds like a bad ground to me.

Check the carpeting and under carpeting on both front floors. Any moisture will lead us into the ground busses that located by each front door.

Didn't get a chance to check anything yet but I went to take my sister to work this morning and everything was still out, but then I stop somewhere on the way home to fill up and when I get back in the car to leave, It'* all back to normal. What gives? Should I still check for that bad ground? I do live in Seattle and contrary to popular belief it doesn't rain all the time. Matter of fact it hadn't rained all that much prior to this if at all.

It'* up to you if you want to fix it properly or not. I'd be in there checking the ground and cleaning it up.

If you want a funny test..the next time it'* not working properly...step/stomp on the carpeting by the door sill... move up and back toward dash and seat. If everything magically changes..it'* the ground buss.
