Normally just disconnecting the wiring won't require the modules to need to be programmed, its more than likely the shorting that occurred when the wiring harness melted that has damaged one or more of them, I would advise sending all three modules away to a automotive electronic repair shop for testing and repair.

You may also have issues with your air flow meter.Generaly though this symptom is usualy a fuel pressure problem.This test may or may not work depending on wether the fuel rail is the problem or the pump.Squeeze the fuel return line at the back of the fuel rail and if engine improves the fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail may be faulty.If no improvement its likely the pump.The best and most accurate test would be to use an inline fuel pressure tester.Can you hear the pump pumping up to pressure when you turn the ignition on?Usualy though the pumps fail but can be heard running but unable to maintain pressure.

SOURCE: Engine shut down

The electrics in the Mercedes are notoriously flaky. A failing alternator would cause a low voltage condition that would cause the battery to run down but would not likely damage any of the computer modules. Have you REPLACED the fuses that protect the various fuel and ignition modules? Not just visually inspected, but REPLACED them? When I ran my Mercedes 123 series cars, I replaced all the fuses on Day One, regardless of how good they looked. Bosch fuses are known to corrode and cause intermittent problems similar to yours. If a fuse is overheating or the contacts are not good, a few minutes of driving could cause a problem that imitates expensive module failure. It happened with my Mercedes and my Volvos that used Bosch fuses.

To locate the BCM remove the passenger side instrument panel insulator.Disconnect the negative battery cable. You should be able to see the BCM tucked up behind the dash panel. Will have three wire pack connectors. You have to reprogram the new one when installed. You can not get another, from a salvage yard and make it work. Either go to dealer, or someone who can reprogram it for you. God-Bless!!

2001 pontiac grand am air bag module reset

Yes!!! You can replace it yourself.(Dont let others fool you into paying extra or telling you otherwise.)
-This is for pontiac grand ams 1999-2005 only.
-There are no frontal airbag impact sensors nor are there belt tensioners.
-The SRS system consists of only the (driver airbag) ,(passanger airbag),and the (airbag control module) in 1999-2005 grand ams.

If you crash/wrecked and airbags deployed you will need.
-Driver and Passanger airbags
-Airbag control module

You can buy cheap airbags from a local junkyard any year from 1999-2005 will fit.
You can also find an airbag control module for cheap at your local junk yard BUT YOU MUST FIND ONE WITH THE SAME (PART NO.) AND (SERV NO.) AS THE ONE YOUR REPLACING.The (part no.) and (serv no.) should be at top left of airbag control module.However it does (Not) have to match numbers under barcode or the numbers at the far bottom right of airbag control module.

After you get both airbags and airbag module
-Disconnect car Battery
-Replace airbags
-Replace airbag module (under passanger seat)
-Double check all connections and connect battery.

Congradulations!Your airbags should be back online.

Notes: Two torx 35 head screws hold the driver airbag, access is through two holes behind steering column.
To remove passanger airbag you have to remove glovebox it uses (7mm)screws.After you remove you will see a pair of (10mm)screws holding airbag.
To remove airbag control module First remove passanger seat 2(15mm).Then after removing you will notice a raises area kinda like a vertical bump.Take a razor blade to your carpet and cut it to explose the module underneath.
The airbag module is held by three screws depending on the year of your car it varies.Most likely 3 (10mm).

S600 will not start, engine turns over.

An s600 is basically two engines bolted together. The fact that it doesn't even try to run on at least six cylinders tells me that it is most likely a control module problem or an EZL-this is located on driver's side under hood on top of wheelwell(you'll need to remove the cover panel to access). It is bolted on and probably even has a vacuum line going to it, along with three plugs. This is not cheap by any means, so look for a used one online. This is about the only unit that you can replace without having to take it to a shop, and unfortunately it oftentimes will scrap a vehicle(due to the cost)
