    Your BCM is located behind your GloveBox. There are 2 Silver boxes one is your BCM and the other is your Engine Control Module . Make sure You Distinguish the Right one or else your car will not start or run. The BCM controls only Lights and Displays.

Location of the body control module on a 2001 Cadillac Seville SLS

The module must be programmed when a new one is installed, so if you attempt to replace it the vehicle will need to be towed to the dealer for programming. My point is you need the dealer to do this repair.

I need to know where the fuse or why my twilight sentinel stopped working on my 1988 eldorado my manual dont say i also got no information from a Cadillac manual

It Could Be The DashBoard Switch Itself Or The Light Sensor which is located Near The Bottom Of Your WindshieldOn the dashboard near your GloveBox may be blocked.There are no fuses for this as it runs directly off your Body Control Module which controls all your dash displays and interior lights.
