radio cuts out and power windows won't work

My 97 Camaro Convertible will have the radio intermittently cut off and power windows won't work when this happens. I had a new radio put in, but the old one did the same.What's strange is sometimes hitting the power lock button will bring it back on. Some times depressing the brakes will make it go off and releasing the brakes will make it come on. It doesn't matter if I'm driving on a bumpy road or not and tempurature doesn't seem to be a factor, it's just intermittent. Any ideas?

Most likely a loose connection somewhere. Are the power windows (switched circuit for relay) and the radio on the same circuit?

Try changing the fuse for the radio and inspecting the contacts where the fuse plugs in. If the fuse is flaky or the contacts aren't tight strange things can happen.

Thanks for all the input. I replaced the fuse and replaced the power window switch. It all seems to be working. Hopefully it will stay that way!
