Body Control Module Replacement on 2003 Chevrolet Impala

What is the approximate cost to have the BCM replaced? I understand that the VIN has to be programmed in to the BCM. Is this something I can program myself with a laptop?

You can't reprogram it yourself, special software is required. The BCM is behind the left side of the dash takes about 1 to 1.3 hours labor to replace the module itself wil retail for approx $200 to $230.
I have a 2007 Chevy Impala SS that will not start. I just get a "click" when turning the key. I charged the battery for hours and it would just click no turnover.I called AAA and he put two jump chargers on it and it started. I parked in garage and put on trickle charger for 10 hours; still just got a click! Also, the dash lights occasionally go out completely for about 10 seconds when I try starting. I replaced battery with new one....click! Put new battery on charger for several hours...CLICK! Took starter out and tested it and it passed the test 3 times! Replaced starter relay, cleaned all connections put starter back in and guess what....CLICK! Now what? BCM?

I just bought a BCM at NAPA Auto Parts for $144. Will take into dealership for programming. I understand this will cost around $50 according to what I've heard from other owners who did this.
had this done not long ago. call the chevy dealer for price of bcm, call more than one dealer because one dealer wanted $240, but I got it at another chevy dealer for $164. also they have to reprogram it they charged me $65 and that was for program and installation. total for part installation and programming was $238. make sure you get the bcm from chevy dealer and let them install it.

I just called autozone & they want $320 before $60 core.(for my 2002 chevrolet impala 3.4) They have to order it but it comes already programmed you will have to give them your vin & mileage.
