Dash back cluster lights out only the cluster back lights all else works. on a 2006 chevy impala ss could it be in the body control module if so could it be reprogramed
Could be the instrument cluster .GM had instrument cluster problems for 2003 to 2006 . Wouldn't think BCM reprogramming to be an issue . Having a qualified repair shop or dealer check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes an view data parmeters would be the first place to start .
When the ignition switch is turned to the RUN position, the instrument panel cluster (IPC), radio VF display, and the HVAC control assembly turns ON at maximum brightness. When the headlamp switch is in the PARK or HEADLAMP ON position, all incandescent and LED back lighting turn ON at the dimming level indicated by the instrument panel (I/P) dimmer switch. The dimmer switch is used to increase and decrease the brightness of the interior backlighting components. The BCM supplies a voltage reference through the I/P dimming voltage reference circuit to the interior lamp dimmer switch, which is part of the headlamp switch. When the dimmer switch is placed in a desired brightness position, reference voltage is applied through the dimmer switch rheostat and the I/P lamps dimmer switch signal circuit to the BCM. The BCM interprets this voltage signal, then applies a pulse width modulated (PWM) voltage through the I/P lamps supply voltage circuits and the LED dimming supply circuit to all related interior lamps, illuminating them to the desired level of brightness.
The BCM supplies a voltage reference through the instrument panel (I/P) dimming voltage reference circuit to the interior lamp dimmer switch, which is part of the headlamp switch. When the dimmer switch is placed in a desired position, reference voltage is applied through the dimmer switch rheostat and the I/P lamps dimmer switch signal circuit to the BCM. The BCM interprets this voltage signal, then applies a pulse width modulated (PWM) voltage through the instrument panel lamp supply voltage circuit illuminating the components listed below:
• Headlamp switch
• Instrument panel cluster (IPC)
• Driver and passenger window switches
• Driver and passenger door lock switches
• Outside rearview mirror switch
Ignition OFF, disconnect the (C2) harness connector at the BCM.
Verify that a test lamp illuminates between the B+ circuit terminal 2 and ground.
? If the test lamp does not illuminate, test the B+ circuit for a short to ground or an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal and the B+ circuit fuse is open, test the supply voltage circuits listed below for a short to ground.
• Instrument panel lamp supply voltage circuit terminal 3 C2
• Instrument panel lamp supply voltage circuit terminal 3 C6
Ignition OFF, disconnect all of the instrument panel lamp components fed by the BCM supply voltage circuits listed below.
• Instrument panel supply voltage circuit -terminal 3 C2
• Instrument panel supply voltage circuit -terminal 3 C6
Ignition ON, with a scan tool clear the DTC.
Operate the vehicle within the conditions for running the DTC and verify the DTC does not reset.
? If the DTC resets, test the instrument panel lamp supply voltage circuit for a short to ground. If the circuit test normal, replace the BCM.
Reconnect each component one at a time and verify that the DTC does not reset as current.
? If the DTC resets as current, test or replace the component responsible for setting the DTC.
