You need a scan tool capable of going into the body control module. You are going to need to see if there any codes stored. That would be the first step. A generic code reader will not work for this.

Hello again Dan here,
I am contacting you because the post has not been closed or rated. We have 7 days to get a post rated before it times out. When a post times out, that means its no longer on my active list (if you reply I never know it.) You have already paid the fees to get this question answered, but it appears you’re not pleased, or need more help.
Let me help some more. Is there anything else you feel I could offer so you would be pleased with my help?
