SOURCE: I bought a new key

Did the unit have anything plugged into the blue two pin port? If so, trace that wire (black & gray) to the programming switch. Once you have located the switch, turn key on, press and release the button three times. The parking lights will flash once. Press the lock button on the new remote. Press and release the programming button once (two flashes), press unlock button. Press and release probramming button once( three flashes), press remote start button. Press and release programming button once (four flashes), press option button. Turn key off. test system.

2008 Saturn Vue Hybrid courtesy lights up front and mid cabin don't go on when door is open. Rear cargo does. Otherwise they do work


When the body control module (BCM) is in an active state (awake) it energizes the courtesy lamps supply voltage circuit. The courtesy lamps supply voltage circuit supplies voltage to all of the interior lamps, including the illuminated entry lamps (courtesy lamps). The illuminated entry lamps are turned ON when they receive a battery positive voltage from the courtesy lamp supply voltage circuit of the BCM. When the ignition is in the LOCK position the BCM will apply the courtesy lamp supply voltage circuit under the following conditions:
• The door jamb input transitions to an active state (opening a door).
• The use of the remote keyless entry (RKE) to unlock the side doors.

Do you know how to do automotive electrical circuit testing using a DVOM- digital volt ohm meter and a wiring diagram to pin point testing areas of a circuit ?
Circuit/System Description
The body control module (BCM) applies battery voltage to the courtesy lamps through 2 separately controlled courtesy lamp supply voltage circuits. When any door is opened, the door ajar switch contacts close and the BCM receives a door-ajar input. If the BCM receives a door lock or unlock input or a rear hatch open input, the BCM will activate the courtesy lamp supply voltage circuits, providing battery voltage to all of the instrument panel (I/P) courtesy lamps, dome lamps, rearview mirror lamps, and rear compartment lamps. In the event that any of these lamps were to remain illuminated for more than 20 minutes with the ignition switch in the OFF position, the BCM will deactivate the courtesy lamp control circuits to prevent a total battery discharge condition.

You can view free wiring diagrams here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. year , make , model and engine ! Under system click on lighting ,then under subsystem click on interior lighting . Click the search button then the blue link. Looking at the first diagram you will see on the top left a fuse box , this B+ for the BCM ,top right is the BCM .You will see three wires coming out the bottom of the BCM , these go to your courtesy lamps , The thing's that look like a open switch inside the BCM , they are transistors or high side drivers . When commanded these supply B+ voltage to the lights . Finding the BCM an testing output voltage would be my first step , before taking the inside of the vehicle apart to find wiring harness to test .

My interior light won't come on in my 1999 Buick Lesabre. I have checked the bulb & the fuse. Can anyone help me with this problem? Any ideas are sincerely appreciated.


Courtesy Lights
The courtesy lights come on under the following conditions:
?€¢
Any door is opened.


?€¢
The interior lamp switch is in the ON position.


?€¢
The keyless entry transmitter unlocks the doors (illuminated entry).

When the key is removed from the ignition switch with all of the doors closed, the courtesy lights light for approximately 25 seconds before fading out.
Battery positive voltage (B+) is applied at all times through the IP fuse block CTSY LP/PWR MIR fuse 6A via CKT 640 (ORN) through the body control module (MALL) to the courtesy lights via CKT 1732 (ORN). The MALL provides a ground through CKT 156 (WHT) for the courtesy lights under the following conditions:
?€¢
The MALL receives an input from a door being opened.


?€¢
The MALL receives an input from the interior lamp being turned ON.


?€¢
The MALL receives an input from the doors being unlocked using the keyless entry transmitter.

The courtesy lamps then light.
When the courtesy lights are activated by opening and closing a door, the courtesy lights will remain on for approximately 25 seconds before fading out after all of the doors are closed. If the ignition switch is turned to START or RUN within the 25 seconds, the lights immediately begin to fade out. If a door is left open, the MALL removes battery positive voltage (B+) to the courtesy lights after 10 minutes. When the courtesy lights are activated by the interior lamp switch, the lights remain on as long as the interior lamp switch is in the ON position. When the courtesy lights are activated by unlocking the doors using the keyless entry transmitter, the lights remain on for approximately 40 seconds. If the doors are locked using the keyless entry transmitter within the 40 seconds, the lights immediately begin to fade out.
Body Control Module (MALL) Diagnostic Mode
For a detailed explanation of the MALL module diagnostic mode, refer to Body Control Module Cell 51.

I have a 2004 Silverado and when I open the passage door none of the inside lights come on but the drivers side does please help


The left and right front door courtesy lamps are controlled, and receive voltage and ground from the drivers door module (DDM) and the passenger door module (PDM) respectively. The body control module (BCM), DDM, and the PDM communicate through class II serial data for the lamp illumination commands and the door ajar switches.
The remaining courtesy lamps are controlled and receive voltage from the BCM. Voltage for the courtesy lamp supply voltage circuit and the backup lamp supply voltage circuit is from the TBC B fuse in the instrument panel fuse block directly through the BCM to these circuits. A short to ground on either of these circuits will open the fuse. Ground is provided to the footwell lamps and all courtesy/reading lamps at G203. Ground is provided to the right middle and right rear door at G306. Ground is provided to the left middle and left rear door at G302.
There could be a DTC - diagnostic trouble code stored in the BCM
DTC B2615
The body control module (BCM) receives a ground signal from the door jamb, liftglass/liftgate if equipped, or courtesy lamp switches requesting courtesy/dome lamp illumination. When this occurs, the BCM directly sends a voltage through the courtesy lamp supply voltage circuit illuminating the courtesy/dome lamps.
Voltage for the courtesy lamp supply voltage circuit as well as the backup lamp supply voltage circuit is from the left instrument panel fuse block TBC 2B 15-amp fuse directly through the BCM to these circuits
DTC B3801
The body control module (BCM) monitors the courtesy lamp switch signal circuit in order to determine when the courtesy/dome lamps should be illuminated. When the BCM senses that the courtesy lamp switch signal circuit is grounded when the switch is activated, the BCM will illuminate the courtesy/dome lamps.
Inspect the following related body control module (BCM), driver door module (DDM), and passenger door module (PDM) data parameters. Refer to Scan Tool Data List or Scan Tool Data Definitions for typical values and definitions:
?€¢
The courtesy lamp switch


?€¢
The interior lamp defeat switch


?€¢
The door ajar switches

Interior lights not working


You mite have a DTC - diagnostic trouble code stored in the BCM - body control module , The BCM controls the interior lights ! Have you heard of a BCM ?
DTC B2615
The body control module (BCM) receives a ground signal from the door jamb, liftglass/liftgate, or courtesy lamp switches requesting courtesy/dome lamp illumination. When this occurs, the BCM directly sends a voltage through the courtesy lamp supply voltage circuit illuminating the courtesy/dome lamps.
Conditions for Setting the DTC
?€¢
When the BCM receives a courtesy lamp illumination request signal and the courtesy lamp supply voltage circuit is shorted to ground.

?€¢
When the BCM is not receiving a courtesy lamp illumination request signal and the courtesy lamp supply voltage circuit is shorted to voltage or open only to the first splice from the BCM.

?€¢
There is a loss of the rear fuse block TBC 3 battery supply voltage to the BCM for more than 1 second

Diagnostic Aids
?€¢
Perform a visual inspection for loose or poor connections at all related components. Refer to Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections in Wiring Systems.

?€¢
Only an open circuit up to the first splice from the BCM will set DTC B2615.

DTC B3801
The body control module (BCM) monitors the courtesy lamp switch signal circuit in order to determine when the courtesy/dome lamps should be illuminated. When the BCM senses that the courtesy lamp switch signal circuit is grounded when the switch is activated, the BCM will directly illuminate the courtesy/dome lamps.

2004 yukon slt courtesy light relay location


Here is a description of the courtesy lights , there is no relay ! Controlled by the BCM - body control module !
The courtesy/illuminated entry lamps, may be manually turned on or off by placing the interior lamp switch in the ON or OFF position. If an outside door handle is lifted or a door is opened, the courtesy/illuminated entry lamps illuminate. After all the doors have been closed the courtesy/illuminated entry lamps will remain illuminated approximately 15 seconds. The courtesy/illuminated entry lamps will also turn on prior to any door being opened, and remain illuminated approximately 40 seconds when the driver removes the ignition key. When the driver places the dome lamp defeat switch in the OFF position, the courtesy/illuminated entry lamps will be disabled.
The left and right front door courtesy lamps are controlled, and receive voltage and ground from the drivers door module (DDM) and the passenger door module (PDM) respectively. The body control module (BCM), DDM, and the PDM communicate through class 2 serial data for the lamp illumination commands and the door ajar switches.
