The first thing you should do is remove the cables from the battery and clean both the clamps and the battery posts until the surfaces look bright.
I apply a protective coating before I replace the cables but it's not necessary to find out if you have found the problem. After you tighten the battery clamps, try to twist the clamp with your hand. If it moves it is not tight enough.
I've often see cars with battery post to small for the clamps.
If it's loose and you can't tighten it any more, you can purchase lead cups that fit over the post.
Remove the clamp and back the nut up as far as it will go, then use a screw driver to spread the clamp. Put the lead cup over the post and press the clamp down until the post is flush with the top of the clamp and tighten it.

i've got the same problem. i've taken it to 2 shops, a master mechanic, and visited the dealership [$$$$]. your body control module [bcm] has an issue. it's the computer behind the fuse pannel. you can TRY to update the driver at the local dealership, but that will run you about $100, and there's no guarantee. worst case, you have to buy a new one from the dealership- $300-400 is what i was quoted. don't bother with a junkyard, as the computers are vin specific and you would still have to pay the$100 to 'reflash/reprogram' it.. but doing that only updates the driver, if applicable, and matches the computer's vin with the vin on your car. once these computers are formatted, they can not be 'wiped' or 'rewritten'. you're gonna have to either deal with the accessories not working, or fork out the $ for a new one. sucks, huh?
