Mine did the same thing, while driving the wipers would go intermittent, windows didn't work, cruise control would disengage. This happened at least every other day.

This is what I found wrong with mine:

Looking at the fuse box from the drivers side, it's the top left fuse. It's the #1 orange 40 Amp fuse.

Mine had a bad contact in the fuse box. I found it by pressing/wiggling the fuses until the wipers cycled (was actually at a job interview and needed to get the windows up). With the fuse out and looking at the contacts, one was a lot wider than any others in the box. I took 2 small screwdrivers and pushed them closer together. Haven't had any problems for over 3 weeks now.

Hope this helps you out.
