Default starter, power windows/door work randomly, not battery

HISTORY: 1995 Lexus SC400 150k fantastic until passenger window and door locked for one month. By chance opened by a car washer (was ordering an in door panel window $6 clip as the fix) but after both worked thought otherwise didn't order the part. Soon after I was locked in the vehicle which did not even click, click to turn over; the doors/windows were inoperable but power from the battery seemed normal as seen on the displays & heard via sounds. Tapped both door panels as panic grew calmed down within 10 minutes the vehicle started all power back on except passenger window not fully down and questionable consistency with master door and window lock controller managing the passenger window/door locks. I checked under hood and door kick fuses were ok pushed them as to tighten seem to work but 2 weeks later No start power windows work randomly on then not but now the vehicle is not starting at all. Battery connections look good, the display is illuminated electronics work otherwise. Seems problems increased after passenger window and door locked up initially. Hate to do it but have an appointment at Dealer this Friday so any troubleshooting will be taken on and greatly appreciated.

Could be an issue with the body control module, or the master switch panel itself. I would be checking the battery's health as well the terminals as somewhere something is grounding out when it shouldn't or not working properly as it isn't a consistent problem and may just not be making a proper connection.
