my car is doing exactley the same thing. i almost took a sledgehammer to it today. i dont know if the BCM is bull or not, but all the fuses look fine in my car. and did your radio just all the sudden stop working when the car was running or did it just fail to come on one day?

No clue I just got the car when I test drove it worked, picked up the car didn't work. This is wierd if I firgue it out Ill let u know.

I don't have a manual yet, so I dunno which is the BCM

BCM, Body Control Module, is located in the right hand side A pillar, in an other words, by the right leg of the front passanger.
