SOURCE: looking for location of bcm on 97 astro van dash

The BCM is located immediately above the heater controls inside the dash on my 2004 Astro. I know it controls the headlights and locks but not gauges. Haynes says the gauge fuse supplies it power....but I'm not going to bank on that one.

P/N 15081796 from Napa $115

Good Luck

SOURCE: Replace BCM and Passlock sensor

if it stalls while driving it CANNOT be anything related to passlock. I would check the camshaft and crankshaft sensors that are typically weak in GM cars and if they fail, the PCM would shut down the engine.

Location of turn signal flasher 2006 HHR chevy where is it located

Unlike older vehicles, the flashers on the HHR are controlled by the BCM.

If your turn signals are blinking rapidly, check the bulb connections for signs of corrosion. Clean any corroded connectors & add some dielectric grease before replacing.

If the BCM has been replaced, perform the following steps in order:
  1. Ensure that the battery is fully charged.
  2. Connect a scan tool to the data link connector (DLC).
  3. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine and all accessories OFF.
  4. Program the BCM. Refer to Service Programming System (SPS) in Programming.
  5. Setup the sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) serial number in the BCM. Select Setup SDM Serial Number in BCM with the scan tool.

How do you reprogram your BCM on a 2006 Chevrolet Colorado

Sounds like the BCM is either defective or needs reprogramming. Since you are combining 3 trucks, were all working well before they became parts vehicles? In a collision, the electric wiring to the BCM may have been smashed and with "crossed" wires may have been erased or shorted.

You would swap BCM's and use the driveable one to get to the Dealer for reprogramming or Autozone, Advace, or Oreilys for a free scan.

I am trying to find the location of the fuses for the brake lights on a 2006 Chevy Cobalt sedan

{: ) The stop lamp switch controls the on/off function of the stop lamps including the center high-mounted stop lamp( CHMSL). The stop lamp switch get its power from the Body Control Module (BCM). This power is also fused but is internal to the BCM. You need to check carefully the voltages at the stop lamp switch and its on/off function. If voltage is not present at the stoplamp switch, you can check the C4 connector(light gray in color) at the BCM if there is some loose connection. Otherwise the BCM may not be giving an output voltage and will need to be repaired/replaced. I hope the problem is not caused by the BCM.

2006 chevy cobalt - door won't open

Start with the basics. Check the fuses (all of them) with a test light and be sure you have power to each and that they are good. Then be sure that the power lock relay is good by swapping it with another relay in the fuse block. If the fuses are good and the relay is swapped and the locks still aren't functioning, you may have an issue with the BCM. The BCM can be programmed to change the behavior, but if the car has had water damage, or other stress to the BCM (voltage, heat, etc.), it can sometimes damage the BCM and you will need to replace it and reprogram it at a GM dealership.
