I have a 2005 Escalade base. Recently the entry remote has stopped working, I think it might be the battery but have not yet replaced. Then yesterday when I locked my door and shut it the lights on the ibehind the glove box nstrument panel were flickering and I heard a relay behind the glove box clicking with the lights. I disconnected the battery for two hours and tried again. this time I locked the door, 20 seconds later the lights dimmed and went out, then the instrument cluster lit up and the GPS/Radio turned on. It was like someone turned on the ignition. I disconnected the battery again, let it sit overnight, and have the same experience.

When door is locked and shut
Lights dim and turn off after 20 seconds
then the car ignition is turned on

Any suggestions on what could cause this?

Sounds like the bcm as that is what works the dash or possibly the harnesses in the steering column
