Random/Periodic Shutdown of Accesories

Has anyone experienced this problem? While driving, sometimes the ‘battery’ symbol displays in red in the “Message Center” and the following accesories stop working: AC, Radio, Windshield Wipers, Mirror Control,Cruise Control, Electric Window Switches.

At times, the window switches do operate when all else is not operating.

Make sure you both check all involving both battery cables and TSB’s.
