Electrical Issues? Multiple problems suddenly.

My 6.7 has been trouble free since purchased new 15,000 miles ago, until now. A handful of issues have come up, all at the exact same time. Here is a list of my issues:
-Both passenger side door speakers not working at all.
-Sync microphone not working. Truck will say the "please say a command" prompt but does not pick up anything I say.
-Compass will not show up on LCD productivity screen. Just displays "--".
-Interior light/dimmer switch not working.

Like I said, all these came up at the exact same time do I assume they're all from a single issue. The truck is still under warranty, but I don't have the time right now to let go of it. Hoped someone here would have some helpful thoughts. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

I would take to the dealer. It seems now a days when there's electrical issues with the newer vehicles and equipment. Its due to a loose ground wire or connection.

For example a few weeks ago I had a new piece of equipment that turned the A/C on and off by itself, radio volume increased and decreased by itself and working lights turned on and off. And a bunch more crazy stuff. After going through everything the problem was a loose ground wire on the cab.

Could be something as a fuse going bad. May want to check if maybe those symptoms link to a certain fuse in your owners manual. Worth a shot.

I've looked through the descriptions of what the fuses are for and couldn't find anything that sounded like any of the things I'm having problems with. Maybe in the next week or two I can get a free minute and take it by the dealership. Until then I'll just have to be annoyed with no passenger side speakers haha. Thanks for the input though!

I'm curious on what it could be.
Another thing to possibly try would to "reset" everything incase their was some sort of glitch. I would assume just like any other car would be to disconnect the batteries for a couple mins. then reconnect them.

i have a 2013 250 lariat and before 4k miles the rear tweeters went and the GPS module went. GPs never had me on the road i was actually driving on. SYNC system every other day would say "performing system maintenance".

Just curious, do you by chance have a lockpick installed? I had lots of weird stuff (some of the same sympthoms) and it turned out to be my lockpick. Irf you do, Coastaltech will replace it free, they know they have a bad batch of them out there.
