    Electronics Cutting Out

    When driving my car at random times the radio will just shut off. The screen goes blank but the buttons stay lit. It is still the factory radio. It also kills the power windows and tonight i noticed the rear defroster light shut off when the radio killed. It will click back at random times. Its not like i hit a bump and it goes out either. Does anyone know what this could be.

    Relay can be going bad. Otherwise could be a loose wire that feeds the relay.

    No to the motor dying

    Ill check the relay tomorrow. I looked at the fuses think i might have a loose one but they all seem good.

    def check the battery terminals cause my hot wire terminal is stripped so i can only get it snug and what u explained sounds like what mine does on occasions.

    I think this is the common BCM problem. Here's a good write up on it:
