Default 06 Vue FWD V6 Dash warning lights, loss of power steering, rough idle

205,000 miles
We are original owners
Original alternator
Brand new battery 6 months old

1st issue started a day ago with oil light coming on. Oil was a tad low, added oil, light went off.

Today, dash warning lights came on including oil, battery and several others, and no power steering but car was running fine.

Towed car to small repair shop:
- when the VUE arrived there was no power steering light or issue
- some warning lights were still on
- running fine
- moved car to adjacent bay and then started running rough, got misfire codes.
- after a few minutes of sitting now, no misfire codes and car is running fine.
- repair shop is still diagnosing issue
- battery and alternator tested fine

Any ideas?

Ended up being the alternator and a wire running from the alternator to the fuse box panel had worn the sheathing off causing a short.
