The first places I'd check are your battery earth connection and the earth strap on the engine block. Many random electrical bugs are due to poor earths.

Definitely check all the grounds.

Check fuses and breakers in the dash fuse panel, reseat them.

Try wiggling the key in the barrel between the positions, can you replicate it? Could be the barrel/switch if the electrics have no power.

The BEM is a possibility too.

Honestly, take it to an auto electrician. He will probably know where to look and how to fix it. Likely to end up cheaper than trying to fix it yourself by replacing parts!

The bootlids fill with water and drop it when you open then, thats common. Not sure why.
