The estimate for my 2000 Saturn LS-1 was around $500.00. I would suspect it should be around this much for your wagon since it is basically identical regarding the BCM. It is easy to get to the BCM so a relatively mechanically savvy person could change it on your own but it has to be programmed which will require the mechanic anyway.

The problem is that apparently, since Saturn has been dissolved the BCM's are getting hard to come by. The dealer is unable to order one for my car. You may have more luck with a 2003.

How to replace BCM on Saturn 2003 L200


You take it to the dealer ! Need's to be programmed .

Body Control Module (BCM) Programming/RPO Configuration

The body control module (BCM) must be programmed with the proper RPO configurations. The BCM stores the information regarding the vehicle options and if the BCM is not properly configured with the correct RPO codes, the BCM will not control all of the features properly. Ensure that the following conditions exist in order to prepare for BCM programming:
• The battery is fully charged.
• The ignition switch is in the ON position.
• The data link connector (DLC) is accessible.
• All disconnected modules and devices are reconnected before programming.
To setup a new BCM, use the Tech 2 in conjunction with the Saturn Service Stall System . Refer to Service Programming System (SPS) in Programming.
If the BCM fails to accept the program, perform the following steps:
• Inspect all BCM connections.
• Verify that the scan tool has the latest software version

Where is the fuse/s for the map lights and dome lights


ANSWER by patrick mannion on June 01, 2010
Looking at a wiring diagram the dome light and rear reading lights operate through the body control module. Check the BCM 2 fuse, BCM 1 fuse and BCM cluster fuse they may all be in the circuit. These fuses are in the engine compartment fuse box.

Body module replaced but only partially functional, has been to several shops but no one seems to communicate effectively with the new module. Is there someone in this area who is good with saturn...


When you replace modules they have to be programmed to your car. A BCM will partially work, but not completely until it's programmed. I only know of dealerships that do this, I yet to find a garage that has the equipment to do this. Usual cost to program is around $100.00

My car won't go into gear


if you shift it and it doesnt engage it could be a transmission failure
if it wont let you shift it out of park-then a common problem with the L series was the body control module shorting out internally-this controls the shift lock
the only way to fix this is to replace the bcm(body control module)
probably runs around $300-$500 depending on your location

2003 Saturn L300 Air Conditioner Does Not Blow Cold Air


I worked at saturn dealer for 18yrs.Those auto hvac heads are a weak link on the L-Series.But I have to say the BCM's are totally junk!! But if it was me I would go with the BCM because you can get a used HVAC head from junk yard but the BCM has to be new because it has to be flashed.If It was me I would try to get a used hvac control from salvage yard.Also yo might want to get a 2nd opinion because those L-Series cars are all bad for Compressor concerns.Hope this helps

2003 Saturn Ignition and Security System Troubles


Sorry to say but it's probably the BCM (body control module) that's going in her car. The BCM controls everything inside your car, from the gauges, locks, daytime running lamps, ABS... and yes the security system. I have a 2003 L200 which had the same problem and I had to replace the BCM at some cost ($400-$600) depending on where you go. The L-Series Saturns seem to have a problem with their BCMs and it seems that it's pretty prevalent. Unfortunately it will only get worse as time goes on and it's not something that you can do yourself as it needs to be programmed by the dealer. You also will need to get your remotes reprogrammed as well with the new BCM. Hope this helps.
