    The window controls are in between the seats right? And does the radio cut out when you work the window button or vise versa?

First, check all fuses and make sure that they are all good. And make sure when you put them back in that they are nice and snug in there ports. If this fails to make a difference, take your radio out and check the connections on that making sure no wires are bad and the ground must be good. If you have an aftermarket radio the ground may have been relocated for install reasons. Im almost certain that its a loose connection. If not you might be looking to replace or repair the BCM (body control module) I believe the radio and windows share the same circuit on the BCM and it is possible that solder points got hot and cracked slightly. I bet you will find the problem with the wires on the radio though. Contact me before you move on to anything other than checking wires and connections if you want. If this helps please rate answer accordingly. Thank you

    We've got a 97 Camaro (6 cyl.) with the same problem. Sometimes pushing the door locks on and off will bring back the radio, but not always. Also, the problem is MUCH worse in the hot summer and I don't remember it happening in the cold weather. I hope we can figure this out. In the last 3 months a 2 year old Diehard has lost enough voltage so the car wouldn't start, 3 different times so far, although it will always take a charge then start later. BuzzieTN (

    Pretty sure it's the BCM. How do you remove the plastic pop rivets located under the dash by the firewall without breaking them?

My emergency brake light came on at the same time as my battery light. I turned off the heater and raideo and drove home and parked it. Tried to start it this morning and my battery discharged over night i...

Not sure why the brake light came on unless it is warning of the lack of ABS but it can be a failed alternator causing the overnight discharge. Alternators have semiconductor diode in them and when one fails, it can easily drain the battery within hours.
If you can get it moving, drive to one of the chain auto parts stores; they will check your alternator and battery while in the vehicle.
