Default S 80 Mass electrical problems

Hi Everyone...hope someone can help. We've had various problems with our 2000 T6 S 80. The most recent (all within seconds): brake failure warning then a/c quit, windows wouldn't work, headlights failed to come on (running lights worked) turn lights failed to work (flashers worked) and doors wouldnt lock/unlock with the remote. Radio worked.
I checked every fuse and moved the relays (ones in fuse panels) around and nothing seemed to help. then all of a sudden all works???
Going to name this car Christine. Also service air bags message has been on as well as service ABS brakes, both for months.
Any ideas?

"Going to name this car Christine."

^^ that came ouf of nowhere

i did have a problem with door locks, it would lock but not unlock, stayed like that for a few days then started working again. same with a few noises and check engine light, my advise with these cars is - if it aint broken dont touch it

Default Christine (in case anyones under 50) was a possessed car.

thanks for the replys....charging system seems to be o.k. but I'll look into it further. If the battery goes dead or even a low voltage can really mess things up.

Car should be charging atleast 14.0 to 14.25 volts.
