Question about Cars & Trucks
Take a look at the battery and check the power cables, some of these fords use multiple positive cables at the battery to feed two power boxes and the starter.
Make sure the power connections are good also follow the positive cable to the under hood fuse/relay box and make sure connection is clean,tight and connected.
This sounds like a connection problem but did you check the inside and under hood fuses??? this sounds like it could also be a fuse, so just wondering if you checked both boxes of fuses,

Now try checking ALL the ground wires connected to the frame under the dashboard. If any one of them is broken off or loose that is a cause of multiple outages.

SOURCE: Winshield Wipers don't work
replace relays 30 & 32 in the engine compartment fuse box near the battery. they both control windshield wiper function. there are a group of six relays near the back of that panel..... looking at the group from the front it's the two relays on the left starting from the top one and going to the next one down.
Please take a moment to rate this solution thanks

This could be a combination of electrical issues, although i feel that the timing is coincidence in this case. When the combination is elec. windows, wipers, and dome lights this is indicative of the GEM module located behind your radio. The GEM (generic electronic module) is an electronic body control module that regulates electrical flow through a number of accessories.
These factory module boards are notorious for acting quirky by failing to ground intermittently until failing completely. I would be cautious in replacing ignition switches, locks, etc. as the issue can be also compounded by corrosion of the main battery ground wire in the engine compartment and which can cause frying of your under dash wiring into the main wiring harness which can get expensive (i speak from experience having had the exact same syptoms). My issues were that these symptoms occurred only in full ON. When in key BACK ACC mode, they disappeared.
New price for one of these modules is around $280-$300 and easily replaced.
