This is unlikely as you would would have errors immediately after installation (blinkers no longer work, windows inoperable, etc).

Another scenario would be a failed component. We've had numerous headaches with the reverse camera modules sourced from Korea, just removed another that was causing all sorts of CAN errors after time, and eventually - failing.

Start by removing the aftermarket components one at a time to see if the errors clear up.
Thank you for your thoughts....
Yeah and then lets say it wasnt that ... then who pays to put that all back in ?
Also i forgot to turn of the SMartop Module to stealth mode. I offered it to the dealership to turn it off... ... but they said not thats fine.

Now i cant event turn it off as the car has no Power
