this sounds like a common link and I will have to study our wiring diagram to properly answer you. Can you wait till tomorrow evening so I have time to do this? Or have me pass it on?

Let me see what info I can drum up for you first, as I like to be fair and honest.

Peter, update for you. The problem is in the steering column electronics. When the steering column extends more than about halfway outward, towards the driver, the radio shuts off and so does the cig lighter and the remote outside mirror control. Use the electronic control knob to move the steering column away from the driver and the radio with accessories works again. There is one spot where the radio consistently shuts down. Moving the steering column one half inch either way results in activation or deactivation of the radio and accessories in question. The spot is about the 50% extension mark of the column. To be clear, I am referring to the power telescoping steering knob located on the column, left, low, about 7 O'Clock on a dial. Moving steering wheel vertically has no effect. Moving the steering horizontally towards the driver is where the affect is observed.
