Question about Cars & Trucks
Sounds like a short in your ignition module, often times the contacts for ignition on fail which would impact all your accesories, this is a big issue for those who have a heavy keychain in ignitions, it stresses contacts. Worth trying to use key alone and see if this impacts problem. Not knowing the model vehicle, it is difficult to diagnose given there are so many variables. Massive GM callback is due to faulty ignition switches which disables air bag, as well as all the other accesories, which no one mentions given importance of air bags in accident situations.

What is year--make--model? Check the applicable fuse for accessory circuit, just pick an accessory that doesn't work. Not only check the fuse, check for voltage on the fuse circuit. If voltage for the fuse circuit is ignition feed and no voltage, have to check feed to and from ignition switch. Because I don't know which vehicle you have, I can't track anything.

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.

U most likely have a water damaged BCM (body control module), u will need to have the Dodge dealer run a scanner test on it, it runs all the thing u mentioned, it is like the brains of the cars creature comforts alarm system and much more, the scanner test is the only way to pin down the problem, u can't just replace the part, it must be programmed for your particular van.
