      sounds like the fuse of these items are all blowing... check ur owner's manual for the fuse box locations - the manual will also tell u which fuse is hooked up to what.

      do note that your X has more than one box of fuses - one on the left end of the dash and one at the left-rear corner of the engine bay (this one also has relays) . most of the items you've mentioned should have a fuse at the left-end of the dash.

      If any of these fuses have blown - replace them (they are dirt cheap at most stores). Run the car, if the fuse(s) blow again, then there is a bigger problem causing them to blow.

      also note that the cover for the fuse box at the end of the dash should have a few spare fuses.

      Could be a problem with the GEM. It does control all things electrical in the Ex.

      Do a search for Autolocks - it may have been disabled it from the keypad outside (how? i dunno, but worth a shot)
