I was reading a thread for alternator and came across one that talked about the electrical stuff in the box on the passenger side of the car near the a pillar. I wonder if I have a water intrusion up there.

Otherwise I am going to start checking for loose connections.
Yes, check for loose connections. Some slush boxes have the speed sensor readily accessible from the outside, some others have them inside the pan - this would be a bear.
But check and see if the pass side vapour barrier is shot. Any moisture getting in there has the potential to mess with electronics.
