    Power windows and stereo

    When I try to roll down my windows driver or passenger the windows will not roll down and the radio turns off for a short period of time. It did it periodically for two weeks now it happens more and more often. Any ideas on what could be going on?

    Search BCM or body control module. There are some pictures floating around. If you need them PM and I have some from when I did mine. The basics are that there's a module behind you glove box. There are 5 soldiered joints that crack (They are larger joints that for a "T" when you look down on the module's circuit board). When they crack it causes this intermittent issue with the windows and radio.

    Suggestion: If you are particularly irritated by another member's posting habits and are constantly fighting the urge to flame them, you can click on that person's profile, and select "Add to ignore list." This will make that person's posts invisible to you.

    Well, there ya go. If you need help with it, send me a PM and I can walk you through it. There are some posts on here if you search it. I still had trouble getting mine out and back in(wouldn't stay in place) even after reading everything I could find on doing this. Good luck.
