I have searched high and low for an answer to my problem.
I noticed today that my 4wd switch, lower instrument panel switches, rain sense wipers and auto high beams were all dead. I used alphaobd to read codes and found U1009 & U0213 in the BCM.
I had recently installed tow mirrors and used alphaobd to enable them. The only other thing I had done is enable LED exterior lights.
I have checked all obvious fuses, and ran through factory diagnostics (Un plugging things on the LIN2 BUS one at a time to see if the code goes away)
The things I tried were rain sensor, humidity sensor, rear view mirror and compass module.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

To start, how is your battery? Weak batteries have been known to cause weird electrical issues.

UPDATE!!!
I ended up performing a vehicle reconfiguration at the dealership I work at. And BOOM!! Both switches came back to life and all codes disappeared. No parts required.
