Question about 2001 Pontiac Aztek

1 Answer

Replaced BCM now radio locked?

After months of electrical problems and just stress and anger, we finally narrowed our problems down to the Body Control Module.
It was replaced, and some things still didn't work, but it had blown fuses so we replaced them and all seems to be doing well.

But the radio still says "Locked". It was saying that before repair, but it also had locked the windows and the dash said "Security".

We aren't having any of those problems anymore, just the radio is locked.

Is there a way to unlock the radio? Or is it pretty much a lost cause at this point?

We don't have a code as I've read that's the fairly straight approach. We've contacted the dealer (it's used) he said call Pontiac. we've called Pontiac and they said they don't keep the codes...

any help at this point is just great because I'm almost going crazy just listening to my tires roll on the road...

    You will need to contact the dealer, he can provide the needed info, if you have the original owners packet it is in there.

You will have to take it to the dealer and have them run a radio setup with the Tech2. The VIN's in the BCM and the radio do not match therfore the radio locks.

Good Luck

    Replace the fuses for the BCM and the Radio, as well as the Passkey (both in the underhood compartment and passenger console panel). This is actually a Passkey security issue. The fuse replacement will reset that.

Why would service 4wd light come on?


Just a guess, but the ECU might register a problem in the 4wd system. I would think one would narrow it down to the transfer case maybe. If you hook a scan tool capable of accessing the body control module I would think it would tell you what it thinks the problem might be.

No, I wouldn't suspect the headlight switch. Something more sinister, more surreal, too: a module, maybe a body control module, or a light control module, probably under the dash somewhere. GM began using a lighting control module (LCM) at least as far back as 1992, tucked unhandily up under the dash, and wired between the headlight switch and everything else in the lighting circuits.
Normal to suspect the headlight switch, but the odd conjunction of the car running and the headlights' actions suggest a module (another computer!) may be in there. The headlight switch should have no effect on it if the engine was running or not. You would have to see a wiring diagram in a repair manual to check. I am not familiar with your Hyundai, but if you could find a diagram, you should be able to fix it.
If you register for free at autozone.com, giving make, model, year and engine size of vehicle, you can access wiring diagrams and repair procedures. Just look under repair guides.
Wiring diagrams were under Chassis Electrical, if I recall.

All exterior lights run through a body control module on the left side of the dash. Inside the body control module there is a relay that might be sticking. You might need to replace the body control module to fix the problem.

hmmmm, this may be a dumb question, but have you recharged your a/c? I'm sure you've thought of that though, it could be an electrical problem with the console going to the A/C control module if you replaced it and that still happens, never worked on a BMW, and Electrical work isn't my strong point, so yeah...
