Smile intermittent electrical problem

I have a 2002 Saab 9-5 that has an intermittent electrical problem which includes the wipers, turn signals, automatic mirrors, cigarette lighter and heated seats all at the same time. If one goes out they all go out. Each time I make an appointment, everything is working that morning and for few days afterwards. Initially the problem lasted only one day and now it will last up to five days. Does anyone have an troubleshooting ideas?

Thanks,

Christine

Ignition switch will sometimes take out a bunch of accessories all at once and not throw any diagnostic codes. Some of those things you mentioned are powered by DICE, some by TWICE, and some have their own power, so it's probably not any individual ground lugs. Poke around in the fuse and relay panels and see if you find any spots of green corrosion on the pins.
