2003 Grand Am (SE1) - Electrical problem?

This is an intermittent problem that started about 3 weeks ago. Car starts OK, but sometimes the air conditioning, radio and power windows fail to work and the clock and odometer displays are blank. Sometimes it’s just the radio that doesn’t work, but clock and odometer display fine. The problem usually corrects itself within a couple of minutes of driving, sometimes turning the car off and on again will resolve the problem as well. I’m sure it’s unrelated, but I recently got a new fuel filter, both front headlights replaced and front brakes (calipers and all) replaced. Thanks!
