    My radio cuts out and comes back on when I tap my brakes and when I turn the turn signal on. I also lost all power to the gaues and DIC. Cant get it in to the dealer until wednesday. Anybody know whats up?

    sounds like an overload of the retained accessory power system, that can be heat related, let us know what you find out from them about it.
