Window and door handle it working- at same time!

    ok- strange thing is happening. Since I got the S, intermittently the back passenger door handle will not auto present for a day or so, then start working again. I realize this is not so odd- other threads exist about it. The odd thing is that at the same time the door handle stops working, the window stops going up or down as well. This seems like a power to the door thing. I made a SC appointment when it wasn't working, but it started working again by the time of my appointment. They replaced the door handle mechanism anyhow (not sure why they thought that was the problem). Next day, same thing is happening. The SC said they had not heard of both going out at once before. I suspect someone on here has seen this? If so, what was the cause? They have asked me to bring it back when it happens again.

    Possibly a bad ground/ power/ network connection since multiple things are affected. Not sure what the actual wiring topology is though...
