U have a problem with the Generic Electronic Module, all these functions are controlled through the GEM, the dealer can run a test on this sytem, but of course it must be malfunctioning when the test is run.

What would cause the door locks, power windows, wipers, turn signals and blower motor to suddenly stop working intermittently?

Couple of ways to go with this. The first would be a grounding issue. If there is a ground that came off to the fuse panel or even another ground somewhere in electrical would do this. The other place to look into would be the body computer of the vehicle. That is not a cheap fix and may need to be calibrated once in place. Just a start for you here as to what to start with.
