Pontiac Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
The doors will unlock but not lock. Could the fuses still be an issue? I do hear a clicking noise so I would guess that something is trying to move. What is the clicking noise?
Ok this problem is caused by the BCM (body control module), in some cases the BCM gets what is called a logic lock and disconnecting the battery and touching the cables together (for 1 minute) will fix this problem, if this does not help the vehicle will need to be connected to a scan tool to see what the problem is with the BCM.
So, if touching the cable together doesn't work, then I can scan it to see what the problem may be. The scan tool is not a special tool, correct? It is the same one at the auto parts store for resetting DTCs.
If the problem with the BCM cannot be corrected by the scan tool, do you know how much a new one could possibly cost?
It is the tool the auto parts store uses but I am not sure if there tool will read the codes for the BCM but its worth a try, if it does not a repair shop will have to read them. But I believe the battery thing will fix the problem.
