strange thing happend today
I drove my son to summer school 1/4 of a mile this morning and after on my way to the gas station I called my wife with the onstar phone. and right after she hung up I noticed my stereo had no sound. then noticed that abs light was on. gauges wouldn't work except for speedo and tach. the only window that would work was the drivers. no chimes and no courtesy lights. so I gassed up went home and immediately disconnected the positive on the battery and waited 1/2 hour. connected it back and everything was back to normal. my question is should I be worried. and if so what should I do?

I hate to break it to you but that's because of the bcm(body control module) I am surprised you could even drive the truck in said condition
I would check and clean both battery cables and if it happens again I would be looking at the ground for the bcm first and if its clean and tight then its likely the bcm itself
I know how you feel as I went through this same issue with my previous car(99 Chrysler Concorde) not fun

Don't feel bad it could have just been a one time thing
I know it may sound hard to believe but the bcm does control a lot of stuff in the truck
I hated to sound blunt about it but I have had previous experience with a bcm going nuts and its never fun
Let me know if you have issues again and I will help you find the ground wire for it

I think it's because it is Friday the thirteenth. You will have better luck after midnight.
