Power windows , locks, radio, and interior lights not working

I was installing a new radio when i got done i had no power locks no power windows, the dome light is not working and the radio is not working, I reinstalled the factory radio and still have nothing. Also the highbeam indicator light on the dash is on when when the car is off. I cant find any blown fuses so im thinking its a relay, not sure which one woul run all these things.

I've got the same problem. i've taken it to 2 shops, a master mechanic, and visited the dealership [$$$$]. your body control module [bcm] has an issue. it's the computer behind the fuse pannel. you can TRY to update the driver at the local dealership, but that will run you about $100, and there's no guarantee. worst case, you have to buy a new one from the dealership- $300-400 is what i was quoted. don't bother with a junkyard, as the computers are vin specific and you would still have to pay the$100 to 'reflash/reprogram' it.. but doing that only updates the driver, if applicable, and matches the computer's vin with the vin on your car. once these computers are formatted, they can not be 'wiped' or 'rewritten'. you're gonna have to either deal with the accessories not working, or fork out the $ for a new one. sucks, huh?

It should list the fuses and relays in your user's manual or have a diagram. Hope this helps.

Blow fuse for interior lights and windows


The short is probably an electronic device which shorted a semi conductor in it's cicuit. Even replacing a fuse will only blow them out right away. Do you notice anything electronic that do not work? For example the radio or something. Anyways I am from houston as well.
