At random times the power windows (all) won't work and the interior lights will not come on. These problems occur together and go away usually within an hour or less on their own.

Why won't my interior lights and windows don't roll up

check the fuses in the fuse panel. make sure the interior light isn`t burnt out and needs replacing. also some light switches(for the headlight) have a switch built within it that if its turned too far one way it will shut of the interior light function. if this not the problem then check for power and ground at the interior light socket as there could be damaged wire. if the fuses are good and the power windows don`t work then you will have to check the window switch for power and grounds as the other windows are feed through the drivers switch. if you have power and grounds then you may need to replace the switch. if you have no power or grounds then you will have to check for a broken wire were the wires go from the door to the body of the car as they have a problem with breaking. there is also a power window relay in the relay box.

2007 GMC Yukon XL wierd problems, all started at the exact same time and just suddenly while driving.

That sounds like the truck was flooded and sold as used and it should have been totalled by the insurance company. If you bought it used, run a CARFAX on the VIN number and see.

I have a 1999 Chrysler T&C, randomly the interior lights will blink on and off, the door ajar indicator comes on and dings and the locks will lock and unlock ALL at the same time. This started a year

That sounds like a bad door switch to me. You will have to scan your body computer to find out which one it is. There is most likely fault codes stored for the one that is malfunctioning. If there are no codes, it can be figured out by watching the computer data while the vehicle is moving to see which door switch is acting erraticly.

Also you may want to take a hard look at your battery and charging system. I have seen shorted cells in batteries cause similar malfunctions. Usually, the customer is not aware that there is a problem with the battery or charging system because the engine can start just fine. A shorted battery cell can cause erratic charging system voltages that can cause the computer system to loose its marbles. (Computers do really weird things when they are suffering from malnutrition.)

I have also seen some problems with Dodge Caravan as well as Town & Country where similar symptoms were occuring where the ignition switch had a faulty circuit and was cutting the power intermittently to the Body Control Module (BCM). This type of problem will usually set a code in the Engine Control Module(ECM) that indicates a loss of communications with the BCM.

I highly recommend that you scan your onboard computer network for possible fault codes and verify that your battery and charging system is working properly FIRST before making ANY repairs.

When slowing down ford focus stops, this does not happen all the time, it seems very random. Have had car to mechanic 3 times he does not know . Suggested it was an electrical problem, electrician thinks...

I'd make sure that the transmission is shifting all the way down to 1st gear at the right time. If it stays in 2nd too long it can drag the engine down even make it quit all together.

Drivers door power window control stopped working.power mirrors won,t work interior lights want come on when you open drivers door but the other three doors interior lights come and the power window...

Since it is only happening on the drivers side door to multiple switches and lights on that door only, I think the problem is the wiring harness as it enters the drivers door by the door hinges.

Interior lights stay on and all power windows inop

I had the same problem.....there is a rubber boot that covers the wires going from your door to the body of the car.... the heavier gage wires eventually crack from the opening and closing of the need to cut the rubber and get to the wires inside and splice them back together....the first time i had this problem my windows did not work...then a few months later my interior lights would not go out....different wire this time ...easy fix....
