A class 2 serial data bus is a communication network between control modules on the vehicle ! It is not a single module . The PCM/ECM - engine computer , ABS - air bags , BCM or in the case of your Caddy three computers make up the BCM , DIM ,RIM and the IPM . Your best bet would be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop .

2000 cadilac seville occasionally doesnt respond when ignition key is inserted, no memory position adjustments, no starter when key turned. is it key or ignition switch. everything usually works fine


Is the security light lit on the instrument when it doesn't start ? The ignition switch on your vehicle doesn't work like you would probably think it does . The ignition switch is input signal to the body control system .
Body Control System Description
The body control system consists of three modules and their associated electrical controls. These modules are as follows:
• The dash integration module (DIM), located on the right hand side of the instrument panel, near the blower motor.
• The instrument panel integration module (IPM), located in the center of the instrument panel, above the radio.
• The rear integration module (RIM), located on the right hand rear of the passenger compartment, behind the rear seat.
Each module integrates input and output controls for two or more functional areas. The inputs and outputs are wired to the closest module to minimize the lenth and amount of the wiring used. All three modules communicate on the Class 2 serial data line, allowing data to be shared among them, as well as with other Class 2 modules on the vehicle as needed.

Each of the three body control modules integrate a number of functional systems under the control of a single module. Each of the modules are connected to the Class 2 serial data line.
Dash Integration Module (DIM)
The dash intergration module (DIM) functions include the following:
• Power moding control (ignition switch states) over Class 2 serial data line
• Control of exterior lamps
• Interior lamps and incandescent dimming
• Steering wheel controls
• Horn relay control for theft activation
• Low side temperature for HVAC compressor
• Hood ajar switch input (export)
• Storage of the clock settings and, sending a message on the class 2 serial data line in response to requests from other modules.

Instrument Panel Integration Module (IPM)
The instrument panel integration module (IPM) functions include the following:
• Front HVAC air delivery and temperature controls
• Ambient light sensor input and twilight delay input for headlights control
• Foglight switch inputs
• I/P dimmer switch input
• Traction control switch input
• Interior lamps switch input
• Key in ignition switch input from the ignition switch
• Fuel door and rear compartment lid release switch input
• Ignition switch headlight control

Rear Integration Module (RIM)
The rear integration module (RIM) functions include the following:
• Fuel level sensor input
• Heated seat controls
• HVAC blower control
• Rear defogger control
• Park brake relay controls
• Various controls for the interior lamps
• Reverse control for the backup lamps and automatic day/night mirror
• Rear foglights control
• Fuel door and rear compartment lid release controls
• Retained accessory power (RAP) control for the sunroof control module
• Ajar switch and tamper switch inputs from the rear compartment lid
• Content theft alarm

At the dealer we would hook up a scan tool and look at the ignition switch inputs to the DIM to see if has correct inputs . Also we would check DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes .
DTC B1805 Ignition Switch Problem

Normal vehicle Class 2 communication does not begin until the system power mode has been identified. The dash integration module (DIM) monitors four discrete wires from the ignition switch contacts in order to determine the present power mode (ignition switch position). The DIM communicates the system power mode to all Class 2 modules on the Class 2 serial data line.

I have a 2001 Cadillac deville and was wondering if i have another car just like it, is it possible i change out the bcm and our other modules needed.


The body control system consists of the following 3 modules:
• The Dash Integration Module (DIM)
• The Instrument Panel Module (IPM)
• The Rear Integration Module (RIM)
Each of the 3 body control modules integrate a number of functional systems under the control of a single module. Each module is connected to the Class 2 serial data circuit, many of the control functions are implemented by Class 2 messages.

Plus they would need to be programmed . Dealer only .

Which one ? do you know ?
The body control system consists of the following 3 modules:
• The Dash Integration Module (DIM)
• The Instrument Panel Module (IPM)
• The Rear Integration Module (RIM)
Each of the 3 body control modules integrate a number of functional systems under the control of a single module. Each module is connected to the Class 2 serial data circuit, many of the control functions are implemented by Class 2 messages.
An after you replace or change one of these modules it has to be programmed .
On vehicles that have several control modules connected by serial data circuits, one module is the power mode master (PMM). On this vehicle the PMM is the DIM. The PMM receives 4 signals from the ignition switch.
To determine the correct power mode the PMM uses the following circuits:
• Accessory voltage
• Ignition 1 voltage
• Ignition 3 voltage
• Off/Run/Crank voltage .
So , what problem are you having ?

2002 Cadi Deville, can't get any locks to operate with remote or dash push buttons, the remote operates everthing but the locks! When the remote door lock is pressed, lites flash,horn blows locks not.


Power Door Lock Operation
The vehicle is equipped with power door locks. Each lock actuator is powered and controlled by the door module mounted in the individual door, but the rear integration module (RIM), which is the master control for the door lock system, determines when the lock functions are permitted. The RIM receives and examines the requested lock function from the individual door modules, or from the remote function actuator (RFA) via the class 2 serial data circuit. The RIM also examines the transmission shift selector position and the ignition switch position information available over the Class 2 serial data circuits. If the RIM determines that a lock or unlock function is permitted, it sends a class 2 message back to the individual door modules commanding them to perform that Lock or Unlock function.
Power Door Lock Components
The power door lock system consists of the following components:
?€¢
Driver door lock switch


?€¢
Passenger front door lock switch


?€¢
LH rear door lock switch


?€¢
RH rear door lock switch


?€¢

I hooked up a diagnostics to my 2002 Cadillac and now it won't start


You mean a scan tool or code reader ? You hooked it up where ? DLC - diagnostic link connector near - under the steering column ? Cadillac what ? Deville - Seville - Eldorado etc... Do you know how to do electrical testing with a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter ? If you did something to pin #2 in the DLC , shorted ! that will cause this problem . Pin #2 is for class 2 serial data bus network . All the modules on the vehicle communicate on this circuit . Pin's 4 & 5 are ground , pin 16 is battery voltage . Your best bet is probably to take your vehicle to a ASE certified repair shop .

I get codes or DTC's that i have no idea what would cause them? IPC 04610, IPC P1610, IPC U1255, AMC B1348, SDM U1255, IRC U1255


OBDII Code U1255 CADILLAC Lost Communications HelpForCars net P1610 Cadillac how to repair
DTC B1348 Very Low A/C Refrigerant Pressure
DTC U1255 Serial Data Line Malfunction
The class 2 serial data line communicates information between the modules. Each module connected to the serial data line is assigned a recognition code, or address. This code is used in order to identify which modules are communicating. Modules communicate with each other by periodically sending state of health (SOH) messages. When the ignition switch is in RUN, each module that is communicating on the serial data line sends an SOH message every 2 seconds. This ensures that the system is operating properly. At key on, most modules must learns the initiation data from other modules on the serial data line. When a module requests initialization data from another module, and that request is not acknowledged after 5 seconds, the module stores class 2 initialization error DTC U1255.
Conditions for Setting the DTC
?€¢
The module does not receive required initialization data on the class 2 serial data line. The module retries the request for 5 seconds, and then sets DTC U1255.


?€¢
This DTC only sets if DTC U1300 or U1301 are not current


Attempt to establish communication with all of the modules using a scan tool.
Does the scan tool communicate with all of the modules?

I wonder how many friends out there mess up other friends vehicles from stuff they see on the internet . When are you people going to learn , your messing with complex electronics !!!!! He shorted out the class 2 serial data communication network !
Do you know what this is ? if not you need to take to your local GM Mr. goodwrench !
Class 2 Serial Data Link
The data link is configured as a ring with discrete lines entering and leaving each module. This allows communications to the modules on the ring if one of the two discrete circuits is open.
A total list of the control modules on the Class 2 Serial Data Line can include the following:
?€¢
Dash Integration Module (DIM)


?€¢
Driver Door Module (DDM)


?€¢
Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM)


?€¢
Head Up Display (HUD) w/UV6


?€¢
HVAC Control Module w/C67


?€¢

Power door serial data does not communicate with the scan tool via the DLC. Power door serial data information is interpreted by the driver door module (DDM) and transmitted on the Class 2 data link by the DDM.
Power door serial data is used for serial data communication between the four door modules as well as the driver door switch assembly (DDSA
Scan Tool Does Not Communicate with Class 2 Device
Modules connected to the class 2 serial data circuit monitor for serial data communications during normal vehicle operation. Operating information and commands are exchanged among the modules. Connecting a scan tool to the DLC allows communication with the modules for diagnostic purposes.
The engine will not start when there is a total malfunction of the class 2 serial data circuit while the engine is not running.
Test Description
The numbers below refer to the step numbers on the diagnostic table.

  1. A partial malfunction in the class 2 serial data circuit uses a different procedure from a total malfunction of the class 2 serial data circuit.

  2. The DTC U1300, U1301, and U1305 may be retrieved with a history status. These DTCs are not the cause of the present condition.

  3. A State of Health DTC with a history status may be present along with a U1000 or a U1255 with a current status. This indicates that the malfunction occurred when the ignition was on.

Where is a bcm located on a 03cad.cad.deville?


You can not reset a BCM ! If there is a problem with one of the systems associated with the BCM . It has a DTC stored in memory ! Besides your vehicle does not have a BCM ! It has three modules !

You have no idea what your getting yourself into when messing with these thing's ! You mess with the wrong thing an your vehicle will never work again , not for you anyway ! These modules all communicate together on a class 2 serial data network ,
The data link connector (DLC) allows a scan tool to communicate with the class 2 serial data line. The serial data line is the means by which the microprocessor-controlled modules in the vehicle communicate with each other. Once the scan tool is connected to the class 2 serial data line through the DLC, the scan tool can be used to monitor each module for diagnostic purposes and to check for diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs). Class 2 serial data is transmitted on a single wire at an average of 10.4 kbps. This value is an average; class 2 uses a variable pulse width modulation to carry data and depending on the message it may operate faster or slower. The bus will float at a nominal 7 volts during normal operation. Each module can pull this lower during the transmission. The bus is not at battery positive voltage or ground potential during normal operation. When the ignition switch is in RUN, each module communicating on the class 2 serial data line sends a state of health (SOH) message every 2 seconds to ensure that the module is operating properly. When a module stops communicating on the class 2 serial data line, for example, if the module loses power or ground, the SOH message it normally sends on the data line every 2 seconds disappears. Other modules on the class 2 serial data line, which expect to receive that SOH message, detect its absence; those modules in turn set an internal DTC associated with the loss of SOH of the non-communicating module. The DTC is unique to the module which is not communicating; for example, when the inflatable restraint sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) SOH message disappears, several modules set DTC U1088. Note that a loss of serial data DTC does not normally represent a failure of the module that set it.
On some vehicles, if the powertrain control module (PCM) is unable to communicate with the vehicle theft deterrent (VTD) system after the vehicle has started, the PCM will consider the VTD system to be malfunctioning. The PCM will enter a fail enable state and will command the security indicator to illuminate. When the PCM is in a fail enable state, the vehicle will NOT stall or stop running. If the PCM is in a fail enable state when the ignition is switched OFF, the PCM will remain fail enable until communications with the VTD system has been restored. When the PCM is in a fail enable state, the VTD system is NOT active and the vehicle will start. This feature is NOT available on all GM vehicle lines.
