Default Lights and electric door locks fail at same time

Went to town this morning, stopped at bank, shut her down, cranked up and went to grocery store - same thing.
Got in, cranked up and drove off and noted the dome lights were on and I had not cut them on. I also noted the automatic door lock did not engage. Called a friend to see if he had heard of it and he thought maybe something in rear hatch door area was preventing door from shutting properly.

No obstruction but when I closed tail gate I heard a mechanical sound coming from inside the tail gate. The sound reminded me of the old mechanical adding machines you punched key and then pulled lever and this sound was very close that that. There is no electric motor in hatch door so ???????

I came home and got home and removed + cable from battery as I will be gone for a week. Will have laptop with me if anyone has any ideas of what this might be?????

Got it fixed. Know a guy who is a whiz on computers in vehicles. When I got home I was thinking something might have got out the computer side and I unhooked the battery and let it sit for a half hour.

Then I got to my computer guy and he said to open all doors, hook up ground side of battery first, then the hot side. Close all the doors and start it up.

It started up, no dome lights on, door locks worked manually, remotely and pulling off automatically locked.

He sais it was critical to hook up ground on battery first to reset the computer. At any way it works.

I have a Jasper engine in it and love the engine and way it runs. 287K on the running gear, 18,000 on the Jasper. Gonna try and run the 2002 about 500 K. That should take me to 85 haha.
