2010 suzuki swift glx ez07 update. is the body control module in this model interchangeable between an automatic and manual transmission

welcome to USA forum.
is your car in USA, seems not, right? where are you on the planet earth, (not ur address) a COUNTRY , matters....
we dont know what trans or engine is in your car.
so how could we guess?
why not ask suzuki this complex question, it might only need reprogramming, as is so common now.

The BCM does not shift automatics, why are you looking in there.
the TCM does that, and is part of the PCM on all modern cars.

did you scan the PCM first. that be first
to see if the TCM portion is barfing out DTC errors for the 4speed.
auto. that be first after checking fuses and connectors to trans.
and AFT levels correct, not guessing method.

1987ford f150 4*4 manual hubs are broken and i cannot find replacements ....they were only made one year like this i understand

Try a Ford dealer. Then go online for Salvage yards. They use the internet and can FedEx the parts.

Remember Broncos had hubs too. The Big broncos are on a F150 chassis so the parts should interchange.

I have i 95 kia sportage and the automatic hubs won't lock the 4 x4 light turns on and in 4 lo the gearing changes but only turns the rear wheels i just bought the car and didn't know the 4x4 didn't work...

Remove the automatic locking hubs from the vehicle. You will probably notice on one hub or the other the alloy tabs that extend from the inner part of the lockout hub are sheared off, they will probably be found loose in the hub or near the bearing. The manufacturer Warn makes a good replacement automatic hub for the Kia Sportage; Warn part # 61918 for the automatic hub or if you prefer the manual hub Warn part # 60247. The hubs come with excellent instructions to remove the existing hub parts as well as the installation of the new hubs. This seems to be a common failure with the Kia Sportage and almost certainly is your problem.

Are the hubs from a bronco II interchangable with the explorer?

These are completely different setups and are not interchangeable.

Bronco 2 hubs

a good rule of thumb is five years.. if it is an 85 it will interchange with models up to 90 if it is a 90 it will interchange with models up to 95 and so on good luck ray

Rear Hub and bearing replacement cost

you are looking at $197.88 to $229.09 for the hub assembly (this is for both the bearings and the hubs) and this is just a guess but anywhere from $95.00 to $125.00 for the labor cost
but you can do what I did find a place where the salvage yard is self service and take the hub and bearing assembly off the car in the yard and put on yours cause I only paid $18.00 for the hub and bearings taking them off and putting back on myself you can do it just take your time and have someone to help you and do one wheel at a time

2002 ford explorer 4x4 will not disengage

Not knowing what type of 4wd engagement sytem you have, this is a guess. Maybe vacuum operated, look for a cracked or disconnected hose.

Or do you have manual locking hubs, that have to be turned manually?
