2003 Chevrolet Impala Question: Body Control Module Replacement

 

Question

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.

    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 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.
