I have a 2005 aztek, i recently replaced the battery and alternator and those are working fine. Had the key stuck issue and replaced the lock switch. Now randomly the battery indicator will come on and the vehicle starts to lose power and the cluster dims then car dies. I also notice that my ABS turns on randomlly when i break. Please help of you can. I hope its not the BCM.

I recently had the same problem with the battery light coming on randomly.  After replacing the battery and later the alternator the problem persisted and got worse and the car started to lose power and eventually died.  I finally had to have it towed to the dealer, who was sure it was the bcm, until they replaced that only to have it short out again immediately.  3 weeks and multiple calls to GM later, they finally figured out it was the ignition switch wire heating up and shorting out the bcm.  Ended up costing me $1300 to have them diagnosis, replace the switch and bcm but car has been running fine since.
