Sometimes when the car is turned on many of the electrical componets won't work; like the radio, the A/C and power windows. Sometimes the service vehicle soon light will stay on, but not always. This can last from a few seconds to minutes, and sometimes clears by restarting. The car runs fine and eveything works ok when it clears. It is very intermittant and won't last long enough to check. Any ideas

The "service vehicle soon" light is like a check engine light for the body controls. The BCM has recognized a malfunction and stored a code to identify it. You will need a professional scan tool, not a code reader to be able to read BCM codes.

The first thing I would check is what code's you have in the computer's it could lead you to your problem.
