There is a body computer that controls circuits and components other than the engine computer. Things like the transmission and power door locks.

Where is the body control module located on 2002 cadillac deville


The body control system consists of the following 3 modules:
• The Dash Integration Module (DIM)
• The Instrument Panel Module (IPM)
• The Rear Integration Module (RIM)
Each of the 3 body control modules integrate a number of functional systems under the control of a single module. Each module is connected to the Class 2 serial data circuit, many of the control functions are implemented by Class 2 messages.

What system (S) are you having problems with ?

Tip

Vacuum Diagrams for 78 CA El Camino


this is a different tip from the title.

This tip is to troubleshoot the hazard, turn, and stop lights for a 95 Grand Marquis. If none of these lights are working, the problem is either with the power to the multi-function switch or the switch itself. Note that the center-high brake light should work independently of the multi-function switch or the lighting control module. The power to the multi-function switch comes from fuse 5 and runs on a pink wire with an orange stripe.
The multi-function switch is accessible under the steering column cowl.

What does bmc mean and what is it for on 1 2001 buick lesabre


BCM - body control module a computer that controls functions on your vehicle . A BCM controls light's , power door lock's , anti-theft system control , Remote keyless entry , headlamps . On your vehicle three modules make up the body control system .
The body control system consists of the following 3 modules:
• The dash integration module (DIM)
• The instrument panel integration module (IPM)
• The rear integration module (RIM)
Each of the 3 body control modules integrate a number of functional systems under the control of a single module. Each of the modules are connected to the Class 2 serial data line; many control signals are implemented by Class 2 messages.
Dash Integration Module (DIM)
The DIM is wired to the class 2 serial data line. The various DIM input and output circuits are described in the corresponding functional areas as indicated on the DIM electrical schematics.
The DIM functions include the following:
• Control of headlights and exterior lamps
• Horn relay control
• Interior lamps incandescent dimming
• Lamps On signal with wiper/washer
• Power moding control over Class 2 serial data line
• Steering wheel controls
• Storage of the clock settings and, sending a message out on the class 2 serial data circuit in response to requests from other modules

Serial Data Power Mode
On vehicles that have several control modules connected by serial data circuits, one module is the power mode master (PMM). On this vehicle the PMM is the DIM. The PMM receives 4 signals from the ignition switch.
To determine the correct power mode the PMM uses the following circuits:
• Accessory voltage
• Ignition 1 voltage
• Ignition 3 voltage
• Off/Run/Crank voltage

Rear Integration Module (RIM)
The RIM is wired to the class 2 serial data line. The various RIM input and output circuits are described in the corresponding functional areas as indicated on the RIM electrical schematics.
The RIM functions include the following:
• The ajar switch and tamper switch inputs from the rear compartment lid
• The automatic level control
• The cigar lighter relay control
• The fuel door lock and release control
• The heated seat controls
• The park brake relay control
• The rear compartment lid release controls
• The rear defogger relay control
• The retained accessory power (RAP) relay control
• The reverse lamp relay control
• The various controls for the interior lamps

2006 Dodge Dakota 4x4 SLT Body Control Module location


I have a manual for a 2004 Dakota that is probably similar to the 2006 electrically. Dodge never called it a Body Control Module; earlier models did have the Central Timer Module (CTM) which functioned like Body Control Modules in other manufacturers vehicles.
In 2004, the CTM was replaced by the Integrated Power Module (IPM), which consists of the Front Control Module and Power Distribution Center, and is located next to the battery on the left inner fenderwell (the Front Control Module is underneath the Power Distribution Center, where you will find relays and fuses). There are several other modules which control various functions, and they communicate with each other through the Programmable Communication Interface (PCI) bus circuit, also called J1850.
The Front Control Module controls all exterior lights, except brake lights and turn signals, and the windshield wiper functions. Other modules (PCM, TCM, antilock brakes, heated seats, instrument cluster, power locks/power windows/power mirrors, etc) control other functions, but all communicate through the PCI bus.

Can I convert from a pull headlight switch to a twist switch?


There is no direct plug-in replacement for it, but if you really wanted to do it and were ambitious enough to get a junk twist switch module and its connector plugs, with some careful wiring modifications, you should be able to make it work since both switches perform the same basic functions. However, be advised that the pull-type switch also has the dome/dash light dimmer incorporated into it where the twist type has a separate dial control for that function. You would need to pull a switch module assembly out of a vehicle that has both devices to wire the thing up properly. I have a 1999 Dakota that has just that configuration, and it would probably suffice if you can manage to fit it into the space you have a available.

2002 chevy impala ignition control module problem


The engine and the automatic transmission in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine.
