Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic

The BCM is a common component that will fail and cause these issues here.Unfortunately it needs replaced with a new one as a used one is already set up and programmed to another vehicle.The dealer will also need to setup and program the replacement with it in your vehicle before your vehicle will operate and in some cases even start up so it is best to allow them to replace it as the vehicle may not start at all once it is replaced until it is setup properly.You don't need to check any numbers on it as they can order the correct one in per your VIN number.
If you still want the replacement procedure let me know and I will see if I can locate and post it here.

I apologize for the delay.The old BCM should still be able to be plugged in and operate properly if the new doesn't work.You may need to have the new one programmed by a dealer before it will operate properly.
Here is the replacement procedure
1. Disconnect the negative(-) battery terminal.
2. Remove the drive lower crash panel after removing the side mounting cover.
3. Loosen the BCM mounting bolt and disconnect the connector.
4. Installation is the reverse of removal procedures. NOTE: If the battery voltage is disconnected for more than about 10 seconds, BCM is reset. WARNING: - When learning the BCM after replacing it, enter the correct PIN code. - Once if the incorrect PIN code is entered, BCM cannot be reused. - Check the BCM state by using Hi-scan.
