when i put my car in gear everything shuts off but the motor stays running after awhile everything turns back on . does anyone have this problem
Wrong forum. You have a 3rd gen.
I could be wrong, but he just may be looking for an opinion to a weird situation. I swap forums here and there because cars are cars when you get down to it.
I myself have never heard of this type of situation.
I doubt it. He joined last week, probably read the incorrect Wiki that lists 2000 as a "2nd gen" and posted here (95-99 is 1st gen, 2000-2003 is 2nd, 2004-2005 is 3rd according to that). You'd be surprised at how many 3rd gen guys think they have 2nd gens.
Either way, this is a BCM issue. It will need to be scanned, most likely with a Tech II, since a normal code reader won't do it on the BCM. OBD II is a totally different beast than most guys in this forum know. That's why I stay away from it
