BCM (Body Control Module) failed, causing ALL interior and exterior lights to turn on and off at random....also caused intermitant failure of power windows, power doorlocks, radio, rear hatch realease, gauges.
Windows don't work when the car runs for 45 minutes. So I'm trying to find out where the windows relay is located.
Many electrical problems from locks clicking on and off by themselves to back hatch not working and windows not working. Had to replace the module.
tail gate would not function . fix remove fuse # 28 under hood fuse box for 5 seconds and reinsert this a short term fix
air conditioner pump not engaging no power to relay . fix remove fuse # 28 bcm pump engaged air worked also a short term fix
I'm going to replace or reprogram bcm as problems resurface after car sits in sun on hot days.
Car died while parked outside while I was at work, replaced the battery then it started working fine, next day i realized windsheild wipers, power windows, and the a/c don't work. We've had random problems with this car since we got it, we've had it less than a year and already put a lot of money into its surprises. Don't have the money to replace the bcm. Just pissed at this dam car
won't start. windows, door locks, radio (will eject and retract cds), ac, many electrical devices won't work. new battery, terminals cleaned, won't shift without removing council and manually overriding silinoid. drl relay ticks repeatedly sometimes. previous owner reported interior dash lights flickering and stalling engine at times.
