    weird electrical problem (must be a chevy thing)

    I have owned several chevys and lets face it, the general doesnt put their best foot forward when it comes to electrical connections. I think they use elmers glue and a prayer. but anyway i randomly lose funtionality (it shuts off) of my radio, clock, and power windows. It happens at the same time and stays off for various intervals. Any Idea where to look for loose connections? thanks!

    If not corrected the condition with eventually cause the radio/windows to intermittently turn off completely.. Shortly after this will then begin to effect the windshield wipers..Then the wiper gearbox will begin to fail and the delay for the wipers will stop working correctly.. Fix it soooon imho...

    You guys beat me to the answer. Pontiacs have the same thing happen, the BCM doesn't care which car it's in.

    Yeah, If you do deside to tackle it, just remember do'nt try to clean the board for whatever reason, and do'nt over finger up the board or the pins.. Best to hold it by the edges as much as possible..
