Hi,my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to try to assist you with this.I may need more information in some cases to help with answering your question.

Expert:  Pete replied 4 months ago.

When the BCM is replaced it has to be replaced with a new unprogrammed BCM.If you were to install a BCM that is already programmed to a different vehicle it cannot be reprogrammed to your vehicle and the vehicle will not start.A GM dealer has to program the BCM after it is replaced.

You can sometimes obtain a new replacement pre programmed BCM through a local parts store.If you have not contacted one of these facilities I would see if they can obtain one of these for you.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
