Twice now my cd player has malfunctioned. It will decide that there is no disc inserted and refuse to play or eject it. This was accompanied both times by other electrical issues. The first time being flashers coming on spontaneously and the trunk sensor going out. At that time they replaced the cd player and the trunk sensor. The second time was recently and I have not had it repaired yet as it is out of warranty. My passenger side turn signals have gone out and my key fob has stopped working. This morning I began having power steering problems.

Symptoms of recall 13036: ECS warning failure and simultaneous brake warning light. Recall sent July 2014 and 'no parts available yet' (Aug 2014). However, 'parts' for this recall include dielectric grease on the body control connectors and cleaning up the corrosion. So, GM is once again dragging it's feet.

doors start locking and unlocking by themselves , fuel pump fails to work then starts working again , all the problems seem to involve the anti theft device built in by the factory.

My car locks are going up and down non stop even when the car is off. My windows won't roll up or down and my lights are flickering on the dash.

BCM was replaced but continue to have all types of electrical problems (door locks and mirrors will not work)air condition also does not work and it seems to be the relay and I am told that most time it is due to a bad BCM.
