Ok np
Expert:  Keiphun Sowell replied 13 days ago.

I agree with you on the assumption the BCM appears to be bad. Being so many different systems are malfunctioning with the BCM being the only thing they have in common.

But unfortunately the BCM will need to be programmed to your car being the anti-theft system and smart key has to communicate with it. I would call you local dealer to see if they can sale you one that they can program before they send it to prevent having to take the car to them and have them program it.

Does this answer your concerns?

Yes I already purchased it and only other question is the location of the BCM. Is it behind the glove box?
Expert:  Keiphun Sowell replied 13 days ago.

No, It's actually in trunk on the right side panel. Please see the attachment for reference.
