    I have the same exact problem... After charging me over $500 without telling me what was wrong with my vehicle, they referred me to a trim shop. I want to drive it off a cliff...

    The radio,windows, and wipers work intermittently in my Escalade also.It sucks to lose some of these functions, but on the other hand it can really tell when there is an emergency vehicle coming.

Thanks for the advice about the BCM. The BCM is located under the center console. There are a total of 4 screws keeping it attached. Two in the center by the CD changer and two under the drink holders. I found that the harness on the BCM of my Escalade was connected but had issues. I could push or pull up and down on it and my cars functions would go on and off intermittently. I grabbed some electrical tape and zipties and tightened up the wiring by attaching it to part of the framework on the console. PROBLEM SOLVED, at least for now. By the way, the Cadillac dealer told me that it is RARE that they have to replace these BCMs. They usually need a re-program that costs around $100.

You most likely have a defective Body Control Module, the dealer can test this and confirm the failure. I do assume all the fuses are ok.

Windows, up and down are intermittent, as well as the radio and wipers. Air won't turn on at all.

You have a short in your Accessory power system or bad ECM. Double check that the battery is charged and not needing service. Autozone or O'Reilleys will test battery for freee.
