Disconnect the negative battery terminal for a few minutes.
Disconnecting the positive terminal leaves the system grounded and a false signal may not be erased.

I would try changing the fuse. It could be blown. That would be the simplest place to start. You may try changing the battery cables, there could be a short there as well. If neither of these easy fixes help, you may need to have a diagnostic test run to check your electrical system.

The car should be throwing codes. The check engine light would be on. Disconnect battery for 30 minutes, reconnect, drive, and see if there is any issue. The BCM should not be at issue here. BODY Control Module.

The easiest and simple should be fixed first . Turn off everything in your vehicle, radio, ac. lights, windshield wipers etc. Put the car in park , turn off the key. Disconnect the battery, wait 5 minutes. Without turning anything on in the car reconnect the battery, leave the car in park and start the car. Allow the car to sit and idle for 10 minutes. This allows the cars computer to reset all gauges and sensors uninterupted. If everything remains off including interior lights etc. the computer will not miss any steps in resetting. This step will also reset your cars idle.

Fuel gauge, temp gauge, and auto door locks stopped working while in transit. checked obvious fuses, found no problems. did not check all fuses. Ideas


I had a similar problem with a 2001 Saturn. We checked every fuse and they were all fine. We finally did a 'reset' on the car's computer by disconnecting the battery and reconnecting it a few minutes later. Everything was back to normal after that.

Fuse box,, relays ?


Disconnect the battery for a minute or two and reconnect it. Sometimes the BCM (body control module) locks up.
