Actually I don't have the car anymore, my husband totalled it out in October. Anyway, this might help you, it solved our problem.
For whatever reason, there are some wires in the trunk that will eventually separate and cause all kinds of weird problems. It's a five minute repair job, really. Get into your trunk and under the hinge (I can't remember if it's on the right or left side) you'll find a wiring harness. If any of the wires are not properly connected, reconnect them and secure with electrical tape. This should automatically fix all your crazy weird problems. It did ours.
Not sure why such a a little thing can cause such craziness, but I was surprised to learn that it really does cause a whole wide mess of crazy problems. I hope this helps you, let me know!
