Question about BCM, LCD information center, etc.

Hoping someone here might have run across this.

I have a 2005 F-150 XLT with 5.4 that I purchased new. Currently has ~89,000 miles. In the last year or so, the information center (LCD with odometer, compass and temp) has gone out sporadically. It is currently out and has been for a few days. When the LCD is out, every time I accelerate from a stop, the lock mechanism attempts to lock the doors. Is this the body control module having a glitch/failing or something else?

Any help greatly appreciated.

I'd suggest downloading FORScan for windows (free), connecting to the vehicle via an ELM327 adapter (inexpensive) and see what codes might be showing.
