When my 'tek is cold, my radio will turn off. I turn it on and it turns off in a cuple seconds. If I turn off the 'tek and turn it on again, the problem goes away. Is it a bad relay? Also the air bad light stays on now. Acouple of times the guages and electronics went hay wire and once again, when I turned the car off then on again, the problem went away. Any suggestions?

For the radio, I'd guess the switch is bad... or has some goo in it. Any pop/drink spilled on the dash ever maybe? The switch could be jammed up a bit and the push/on push/off might be fouled up.

It happened about 10 minutes into my drive the other day. The radio turned off suddenly, the dome light came on and the doors unlocked! 10 seconds later the guages all went to zero, the odometer read "error" and the security light came on the message center? What could it be?

WOW - sounds like some serious computer and/or other electrical issue. Did you buy the Aztek used? Do you know it it was ever in a fender-bender or anything?

Could be a problem with the BCM or body control module

After some research, it does sound like a BCM. Now, all this happens about 10 minutes after the car is runnin, and it only happens that once. You can turn it on and off all day long and it doesn't do it anymore. The colder (0 degrees) it is the more of a chance of it happening. When it was in the 30's a couple of weeks ago it didn't happen. I may try to clean the connections and pray. I have to drive to Florida in March.

Thanks once again guys. It was the BCM! My GM dealer is gonna fix it for $525. The airbag light is on because of the BCM. Thanks again for the advice.

Just a quick thought.  I just bought a BCM from an '04 for $50, tho it turns out I didn't need it.  As far as I know, it's really easy to swap out yourself.
There's a guide here:

Very easy fix and it should only take an hour at most.

Just thought I'd let you know in case you want to save some money.

Radio stills turns off by itself. Took it back to the dealer, the are going to track it down. BCM is new, but there is another module that could be bad. I may have to replace this one myself.
