Mein Auto:
I have a problem with my car, the car died because of a bad alternator then the radio died so i changed the alternator but the radio is still dead and the blinkers, high beam and such doesent work in the instrument cluster but everything works on the outside. I have replaced the ignition switch and the lcm and checked the fuses but nothing works, what can be the problem? I have some fault codes if it helps somehow its in german so i dont understand what it says exactly. Thanks in advance

kurzschluss gegen masse fehler momentan vorhanden sporadischer fehler
short circuit to mass error currently available sporadic error

ungueltiger arbeitsbereich fehler momentan vorhanden sporadischer fehler
invalid workspace error currently exists sporadic error

leitungsunterbrechung sporadischer fehler
line interruption sporadic error

I would start checking that the battery terminals are nice and secure, then check grounds, and then start trying to find any frayed wires.
