Question about 2002 Nissan Sentra

1 Answer

I am looking at a 2002 Nissan Sentra. The owner told me that the body control Module appears broken since the remote locks, power door locks, headlight buzzer, and rear defrost aren't working. How expensive is it to have that repaired?

I would check all the fuses. Because some fuses supply a component from other fuse locations. It is safe to remove every fuse one by one to check for a bad fuse. With these problems you are explaining it really sounds like a bad fuse or relay. The module would not be the first on the list to repair. If you do find a bad fuse, replace it with the correct amps. You will have to refer to you owners manual to find which relay works the locks. But I really think a fuse is the problem here with multiple issues.

I have an 04 Grand Cherokee with no power windows, no power door locks and no FOB control.

I believe I have a lifted ground ????? what do you mean by this ? Do you know that the power windows ,lock's ,remote keyless entry are controlled by modules ( computers ) DDM - drivers door module ,passenger door module , serial data communication network (PCI data bus ) ?
Ground is supplied for driver door module at body ground G-300 , black wire connector 1 pin #4 driver door module . The first thing in diagnosing these system's would be to hook up a factory or professional scan tool to check for DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes , viewing input an output data to the door module's ,does the module communicate with the scan tool. Going at it blind never works . Free wiring diagram's here Enter vehicle info. Year , make , model and engine size. Under system click on body & accessories ,then under subsystem click on power lock's or windows .Click the search button then the blue link .

Looking for location of the keyless remote control module on a 2010 Chevrolet Avalanche LT

Remote Control Door Lock Receiver (RCDLR)
The remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR) is a multifunction module that operates both the keyless entry system as well as the tire pressure monitoring (TPM) system. When an RF message is received from a keyless entry transmitter, the RCDLR interprets this signal and will request via serial data that the body control module (BCM) perform the specific function, i.e. door lock, door unlock, or vehicle locate. The RCDLR also sends messages out to the 2 Way Advanced Remote Start transmitter.

Remote Control Door Lock Receiver (RCDLR) (AP3 or AP8, without E52)
Top rear of the passenger compartment above the rear window

Remote Control Door Lock Receiver (RCDLR) (AP3 or AP8, with E52)
Left rear of the vehicle behind the D-pillar trim panel

Body Control Module (BCM)
On the lower left side of the I/P to the left of the steering column

Good luck !

Rocker switches,nor remote will lock or unlock doors fuse good

So , the power door locks won't lock or unlock with switches inside the vehicle or with the keyless entry remote fob.??? Is this correct ????
Do you know what a BCM - body control module is ? Do you know what diagnostic trouble codes are ? If not your best bet would be to take your vehicle to a GM dealer or someother qualified repair shop.
DTC B3142 or B3143
The body control module (BCM) provides an output to the driver switch assembly through the door unlock control circuit for controlling automatic door unlock, anti-lockout, and keyless entry unlock functions.
DTC B3152 or B3153
It could be the driver door master switch , could have broken wires inside the rubber boot from the body to the door . Do the power windows work ?
The keyless entry system has the following main components:
• The transmitters
• The body control module (BCM)
When you press a button on a transmitter, the transmitter sends a signal to the BCM. The BCM interprets the signal and activates the requested function.

How did you do this ,,checked and made sure locks and remote programmed,they were,but still do not work ?????

Need a scan tool to program
Important: All key fobs must be programmed each time any one fob is programmed. The scan tool must stay connected until all of the transmitters are programmed.
Install a scan tool and navigate to the BCM Module Setup menu.
Select Program Key Fobs.
Follow the scan tool on-screen directions.
When the programming operations have completed, operate the transmitter functions to verify correct system operation.

Dear fellow Elantranians,
I am an original owner of a 2002 Elantra (w/anti-theft module/ETACS), and have wrestled with the same problem for months: remote will unlock, but not lock doors.
The answer to the problem, at least in my case, was a door lock relay (Part #95250-2D000) located behind the center dash, to the right and below the radio and heater/AC controls (removal and replacement reasonably easy). A simple removal of one bolt and a wire connector, and the little devil is exorcised. It's been working without a hitch for more than two weeks, and expect it to continue for eleven years as the original relay did. I purchased this relay from a local salvage yard for $14.00, but a Hyundai dealership (, will sell it to you for $36.00.

Where is BCM located on 2002 PT Cruiser locks working even when car is not on have been told to check BCM don't know where to find it

I don't find a body control module for your car, but according to the wiring diagram the door locks are controlled by a keyless entry module which is located on top of the dash behind the ac vents.
There are three fuses that power the module.
Check with your dealer for more details.

None of the power door lock switches work.

Have you checked the wires between the doors and body, they will break in time, and yours is a year where they could be broken now, they don't last forever.. that will cause the fuse blowing, and the locks not working.
Check all doors, but most likely the Drivers door or Passenger door will be the culprit......
