No electricity every once in a while

Once or twice a month I'll hop in my truck start it and I wont have radio or windows, I have to shut it off and turn it back on usually about 5 times to get them back. What can I do to fix this?

When you loose windows try turning your key back just a smidge towards off and see if it comes back to life. This happens with my parents econoline every now and then.

Its only the windows and radio that aren't working at that time, are you sure nothing else? Lights, horn or anything else on the accessory circuit?

Happened again today. No radio or windows. Opened and shut the door like 5 times and turned the key back and forth a lot, ended up cranking up the truck and shutting it off about 8 times. Where do I look for the bad ground?
