1999 Camaro Base Radio and Window Issue

Hey guys, so i got that 1999 Camaro i was looking at. I love it, it's amazing. But, at random, and when i go over bumps (usually big bumps, but sometimes small ones too), the radio cuts out. and when the radio cuts out, the windows don't work. is this just a loose wire, or is the radio going? i've heard both. it's a stock radio with a CD player but no cassette player. help? please and thank you.

Check your bcm. There is a huge thread on it. You will need to know how to solder. It worked for me.

If USPS is what you want to use. Get shipping address and go to post office. Tell them you need to mail/ship something. They have boxes there to ship the item in or you can box it yourself. Post master will assist you in shipping it out.

I had to register on the forum to give thanks and props because I read the how to thread and reflowed the solder and now the radio works and I can tell that my windows need motors cuz I can hear them trying to spin, which means that the bcm repair worked.
