Hey y’all! Bought this ram 1500 this past January it’s a 2017 model and I’m having some random electrical glitches. Sometimes my door locks don’t work and the key fob doesn’t open the doors so I have to use the manual key. Sometimes the display behind the steering wheel switches from Trip odometer to mph. Sometimes when I put it in reverse the back up camera is clear and sometimes it is all wavy and noisy.
What could be causing this? Is it a PCM control module? Or is a different electrical issue? Thanks for your input!

May sound stupid but did you check the age of your battery?

I don’t know what the age of the battery is. The date sticker is not been punched. I did pick up the harbor freight battery load tester and the battery is good and the charging system was good as well. Should have some time today to hunt down any grounding issues. Thanks for your input guys!
