2003 Saturn Vue: s security system..fuel pump..i try to restart..BCM.

This answer was rated:

My 2003 Saturn Vue's security system keeps shutting down the fuel pump, killing the car and draining the battery when i try to restart. All the research I've done says I need to replace the BCM. However, I am currently without a job and cannot afford to do that. I am not having any other computer type problems so i am wondering if I can just snip the wire to the security system or will that just cause more problems?

Hello and thank you for your post. I am a master certified GM tech, with 15 years Saturn experience,and can help you to resolve your issue.

15yearsaturnguy :

have you ever had the body computer AND engine computers scanned for codes?

15yearsaturnguy :

you may just have a faulty ignition sensor.

15yearsaturnguy :

to bypass the security sensor requires the installation of a resistor in the wire which if not done properly can lead to repeated no starts as well.

15yearsaturnguy :

the resistor is also called a bypass module

15yearsaturnguy :

it is part of a remote start system.

15yearsaturnguy :

that will run you around $400 installed professionally and you will never be able to use your key to start the vehicle... where the security sensor will run you about the same.

15yearsaturnguy :

a new bcm is like $700.
