The blinker relay is getting worn out. It's right behind the hazard lights switch. Pull off the black trim around the radio, hazard, ets, and the relay is write there. Next time the blinkers stop working hit the hazard button or hit the trim just above the hazard lights button. Mines been doing it off and on and I just hit the trim above the hazard button and they start blinking again. Never have time or remember to get a new relay.
Newer cars come with a switches that delays their shut down of certain lights on the car. Sometime they allow you to get inside your home before the turn off but sometimes the switches malfunction and you light never turns off. I have had this happen on my 2006 vehicle several times in the past. Maybe these kind of switches one day will get a little better. Until then, you can ignore it or pay the big bucks and have a technitian repair it..
This sounds similar to my problem yesterday, where the lights were blinking on and off and the gauges going up and doing like crazy. It was the battery has lost most of its charge (only had 230CCA out of the expected 800).
Fortunately, the battery was still under warranty.
Maybe try replacing the wires that first come from the battery. Both positive and negative. Everything eventually grounds back to the frame that ends up going back to the battery. As far as the security light. This can cause alot of different problems from starter failure to injecter failure. Cars have been known to die while driving. Check this link for that
Try to mess with the fade and balance. It's possible you have one or two bad speakers and the radio only has the bad ones getting power.
If you have a remote or can borrow a remote (or have steering wheel controls) try to change the volume with it. Your volume button could be bad on the radio.
Something else you may want to try; first make sure you have your unlock code for the radio! Then remove your radio from the dash. This will take some time but be patient you don't want to break anything. Once out unplug all the wires and wait about 10 min's. This will sometimes reset the radio but if this works it will most likely go back out in due time. This will give you time to get a new radio.
You could try to pull the fuses to the radio instead just make sure you get them all or disconnect the battery for a while. These two may not do anything sense some pcm or ecu have their own battery back up and the radio will use it for it's memory if it can.
Another way to check the speakers is to do a oil lift reset. If I remember right; you can do the reset though the radio and it should chime over the speakers.
Most likely the channels have burnt out and you will need to replace the radio. Stay with an OEM shop ebay.
First place to check is the battery. Old ones can push your lights , radio, etc, but the starter is the real load. . Can verify this by using jumper cables to a running vehicle and watch your machine fire right up! The reason mornings are the worst, is the battery has had the most time to discharge, and it is probably cooler outside.
Then you are saying the switches are part of radio? then the fault is with the radio, there is no computer that runs the radio. Pull the radio and send it out for repair through your local GM parts dept to a authorized GM repair facility, it is not user serviceable.
