    Unhappy 2000 Z windows and radio quits

    For no reason when it feels like it they quit working. If I turn the car off then back on again they work until the next time. Anyone else had this type of issue?

    It's an easy fix I did ours back in February. Just follow the instructions. It will be a whole new car afterwards.

    Read the instructions. It can be resoldered
    I like work. It fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours.

    When I opened mine it was easy to tell where the problem was. If you magnify the area discolored area 10x you will see the cracked solder. Make sure you dont use a soldering iron that is to big. Get a small one for electronics at radio shack.

    I was going to post close up pics but for some reason I am not allowed. PM me if you want and I will send the pics to you.

    I have a similar problem, the drivers power window intermittly stops working and there is static in the drivers speaker. A mechanic told me that this was a well known defect in f bodies and could be fixed by adding a ground wire to window motor. So is it a lack of ground? or BCM?

    BCM does not control the speaker. Just the regulator/switch and locks in that door..

    Pulled my BCM yesterday, took about 2 hours. Used both of the links above and all I could add is the BCM must pop out of the holder by prying the holder apart and pulling forward and down. I had no missing solder, but resoldered all five points. Ran the window that was a problem thru 8-10 up and down cycles. Hopefully my intermittent problems are solved.
