    There were some posts not too long ago about something similar -- apparently the solder joints in the BCM can fail and lead to all sorts of odd electrical issues. The fix is to remove and open up the BCM and simply re-solder the affected connections. If you do a search and you will probably find detailed instructions.

    2000 WS6 Trans Am

    Everyone here is spot on. I had the same problem with my 2000 WS6 Trans Am for a few years. It started out where it would only happen once in a while. It started to happen more and more frequently as time went by. I just got it fixed a few weeks ago. I couldn't find anyone near me that I could trust to resolder it and I lack the mechanical ability to do so myself, so I just took it to the dealer and they replaced it. It was $295 for the BCM and the total came to just under $400 with labor. If I'm not mistaken, the BCM is located behind the passenger side kick panel. I know from experience what an annoying problem to have, I feel your pain!
