When driving down the road, all of my gauges and lights will go to zero/turn off then come right back on. I have also been having issues with my door locks and windows not working from the drivers door either. And the cruise only works for maybe, two seconds then shuts off. Any advice?

Check your battery connections are good, had something similar (only when starting) on a previous car turns out i had enough crap around the battery terminals as it was breaking the connection.
Door locks and windows could be the CCM unit, have a check under the passenger side carpet see if it's wet (there's a whole section devoted to this in one of the forums)
Cruise control could be either your brake or clutch switch being faulty. I had an issue where my cruise would work fine for a bit, then it would just cut out, it was (in my case) a faulty brake switch.
Hope this gives you a starting point :)
