Truck wouldn't start. Factory battery terminal ends were cheap and were too loose for a good electrical connection. Shop checked for parasitic draw and found none, so they replaced the faulty terminal ends and fully charged the battery. The driver's side window switch, lock switch, and key fob work intermittently. Shop couldn't replicate issue (of course). No repair attempted. Suspected to be a switch/body module controller issue. Issue persists. Update: later went away on its own.
