2007 Outlook XR

Question Outlook BCM Gone Bad?

I've been having a few quirks for the last six months or so with my 2007 Outlook. When it was exceptionally cold outside (under 10*F), my radio would fail to turn on, or if it did, I couldn't change the channel or volume level. Around the same time the car started having issues with correctly dimming/brightening the dash lights coming in and out of the parking garage. At the time I thought these were unrelated issues. Now yesterday my car suddenly failed to backlight the guages, radio lcd, climate control lcd and driver information lcd. All guages worked however. It suddenly started working correctly a few minutes later. This morning it did it again but it took longer to kick back in.

I'm suspecting the BCM - my mechanic can install and program it for $160 which is pretty much a steal compared to the dealer, and I'm finding it online through a GM dealer in Arizona for $175 instead of the $325 at my local stealership. Am I on the right train of thought here? I don't mind getting the BCM, but I hate to be somewhat blindly throwing over $300 at the car if I'm wrong.
