Power windows an locks work ok ? Do you know anything about automotive electeronic control modules ?
Power Mirror System
Power Mirror System Components
The power mirror system consists of the following components:
• Driver Door Switch (DDS)--An electronic control module with integrated switches and requires programming when replaced
• Passenger Door Switch (PDS)--An electronic control module with integrated switches, requires programming when replaced
• Power Mirror Direction Switch--Integrated into DDS and is a 4 position momentary switch that provides a signal input to the DDS for up, down, left/extend and right/retract with a mirror switch activation
• Mirror Select Switch--Integrated into DDS and is a 3 position switch that allows the operator to select the left or right mirror and also a neutral/fold position
• Left Outside Power Mirror--Contains both the vertical and horizontal mirror motors
• Right Outside Power Mirror--Contains both the vertical and horizontal mirror motors
• Body Control Module--An electronic control module that requires programming when replaced, serves as the power mode master and is the main message handler
• Memory Switch, if equipped with memory mirrors--Supplied power by the DDS and provides a voltage signal to the DDS upon a switch activation
• Horizontal and Vertical Position Sensors, if equipped with memory mirrors--Supplied a 5-volt and low reference by the DDS/PDS and provide a variable voltage signal to the DDS/PDS that is proportional to mirror position
• Powertrain Control Module (PCM), if equipped with memory mirrors--An electronic control module that requires programming when replaced and provides the message indicating transmission gear selection
• Driver Information Center (DIC), if equipped with memory mirrors--Part of the instrument cluster which is a an electronic control module that requires programming when replaced and is used to personalize the memory recall functions
• Fold Motor, in each of the outside mirrors, if equipped with power fold mirrors--Provides extend and retract movements of the mirror and is serviced as a complete mirror assembly
Each of the outside power mirrors contains 2 reversible motors to provide horizontal and vertical movement of the mirror glass. The vertical motor operates the up and down directions and the horizontal motor operates the left and right directions. If equipped with power folding mirrors, each outside power mirror will contain a reversible fold motor to operate the extend and retract functions. Each of the mirror motors are circuit breaker protected.

Do you know what DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes are ?
DTC B1023
Circuit/System Description
The driver door switch (DDS) and front passenger door switch (PDS) each contain switches that control power door lock and window functions. The DDS also contains the control switch for the power outside rear view mirrors. These switches are integrated within the door control modules and are not serviceable as separate components. The DDS and PDS monitor these switch inputs for internal faults and set B1023 00 if any are detected.

You could have any number of problems an without testing , hooking up a scanner that can check DTC'S in the door module ,electrical circuit testing etc... we'd only be guessing . Your best bet mite be to take it to a qualified repair shop.

Does it have climate control? If so, that's probably a bad blower fan speed controller.

ALL things pertaining to ANY motor vehicle, needs immediate attention

There is too much theory & various possiblities to list here

I would not suggest you just throw parts at problem,but you have
DTC --diagnostic trouble codes that are active & are telling you that
an item in some system has failed,so yes, find out what & repair now

Your ability to use the vehicle at all or enjoy it with the confidence
that damage won't happen is not certain

That said I would replace the O2 Sensors in this case
You will have one or two that are in or before the converter
or converters, if you have two.

They should be changed at 80 to 100,000 anyway, and are clearly
not working correctly, based on the codes you provided

The rear sensors should be okey

I have no idea why you & thousands of people even suggest ignoring
something on any vehicle when problems arise
They cost $40,000 new & are treated like they mean nothing & have no
value or use in your life

I paid less than that for my first home.

No, 07 and up.

but that's all you need to do is remove the end piece on both sides and slide the cross rails in and replace the ends

T-15 is the size...Its a good idea to check them regularly if you use the rack regularly...>
Cross rails retaining screws

Look at the vin. If it starts with a 1 it is US made. If it is 3, it is made in Mexico. I would check the fuses, etc first, but it sounds like the liftgate motor - ACDELCO Part # 25889602

When you turn the key on, do the warning lights come on the dash ?
Can you turn the headlights on ?
These answers will help narrow down the problem to the main circuits or just the key switch.

you need obd scanner to reset and see if comes back- if it does come back with code , post again

I assume you are using a keyless entry, in which case - you need to replace the sensor for the rear hatch
