Default multiple issues on 2009 Laramie

Hi guys. I have visited this site before, and it has helped me troubleshoot some issues I have had in the past. But, after doing a little searching, I cannot find an answer for this. Hopefully somebody can steer me in the right direction.

I have a 2009 Laramie. This morning, I started the truck remotely from inside the house. It started right up, as usual. Minutes later, when I tried to open the door using the same remote, the doors would not unlock. I used a physical key to open the door. When I put the remote into the ignition, I saw that two indicators were illuminated, as well as a message on the display. The first was the airbag, the second was the traction control, and lastly I had "service part assist" on the display. I tried restarting the truck, and got the same results.

I took off for work anyways. The truck drove fine. But, when I got to work and tried to lock the door using the lock/unlock control on the armrest, it did nothing. I manually pressed the level down to lock the door.

Any idea what is causing this?

To summarize:

1. Remote works fine to start vehicle, but not to unlock/lock
2. "Airbag" indicator was illuminated
3. "traction control" indicator was illuminated
4. the display read "service parking assist system" (or something like that)
5. Door lock/unlock buttons on armrest do not work

Thank you so much!

My first guess would be the remote lock/unlock module. I believe the lock/unlock is a separate module from the remote start module. But that doesn't make sense either. Perhaps your master lock/unlock switch has gone bad. Hmm, unfortunately on these trucks, it could be a lot of things. Have the codes read and see what the computer says.

Default Electrical issue

having the same issue with mine, it started with my doors not locking or unlocking, then my airbag, parking brake, ABS, traction control light came on on the dash, my windshield wipers, horn, A/C and heater, door locks wont work, back window wont roll down. I brought it to the dealership they replaced my TIPM and everything started working except all my lights on the dash is still on and my battery and oil pressure gauge wont work. The mechanic said that my computer in the truck is saying its a 2008 jeep wrangler with a 2.7L. They have no clue whats causing it. They're trying to get my warranty to approve a new computer then try that
