Sluggish window operation can result from a weak motor or a dirty track. Use a child-size toothbrush dipped in water to scrub dirt out (a new one, of course, not some child's favorite toothbrush). You may find marked improvement.

When you unplugged the alt,did you disconnect the larger alt output power wire?That.s usually where a power draw will be in an alt as this wire is connected to the diodes.

You have a parasitic draw on the battery , Testing to find the draw isn't too hard ,all you need is a DMM - digital multi-meter . Test for voltage drop over the fuse's . I know GM vehicles had instrument cluster problems that would cause this problem , but test first . Watch these videos .

Doesn't use a fuse , ues a circuit breaker . These very rarely go bad .The right rear door works ? Uses same circuit breaker as front passenger door. The power windows an locks on your vehicle are controlled by electronic control modules . FPDM - front passenger door module , I would look for a broken orange wire inside the flex boot from the body to the front right passenger door . This is power supply to the passenger door module . Do you know what wiring diagrams are ? Free here http://www.bbbind.com/free-tsb

Not to question your ability, if you listen from the drivers seat while driving, just do yourself a favor, check the rear brakes, funny how sound travels and tricks the mind

Just a question. Does the truck do this after the truck is warmed up. If not this is a temp. issue and can be a few items. Generally this is an electric switch issue. Remove the fuse from the system when you shut it off for the night and see if it still jumps to 4x4 mode.

GM had insturment cluster problems 2003 to 2006 . Inside is a part called a stepper motor , this stepper motor controls the gauge position .

Being and electronic speedometer, it will surge a touch when engine first started or switch first turned on, that's normal, but the only reason it is not working while driving is most likely a faulty speed sensor. Code should tell you this with a reader.

PRNDL Display
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the selected gear position as determined by the powertrain control module (PCM). The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the gear position. The PRNDL display blanks if:
• The PCM detects a malfunction in the transmission range switch circuit.
• The IPC receives a class 2 message indicating the park position and the column park switch indicates a position other than park, open input.
• The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communications with the PCM.

Could be the transmission range sensor . Testing would need to be done , hooking up a scan tool ! Doing electrical testing etc...
