Power door locks function intermittently. Sometimes they all lock/unlock, sometimes no doors lock/unlock, sometimes certain doors lock/unlock. Sometimes the windows operate very slowly as well. I have only used the locks when the vehicle is stationary, but I have noticed the window problem when both moving and stationary. This has been an issue for over a year, I can't pinpoint the exact time it first happened, but it is an ongoing issue.

For the past two year I have been getting intermediate false fuel readings. The gauge would read empty or close to it. One time it stated I had more gas then I really did, causing me to run out of gas on the freeway. As time went on, the issue became more frequent. It is becoming a dangerous issue.
