Hello my name is ***** ***** I'll be happy to help you today, have you tried to check if there are any trouble codes in the body control module? Is there any power on the starter wire?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
haven't checked for any trouble codes, or have I checked for power to the starter wire, but the indash monitor indicated "engine poeer down" and when reset indicated "tire service" and "service engine soon"
Expert:  Edgar replied 2 years ago.
You may want to try to check with a scan tool if the body control module is communicating, normally when everything stop working the way you are describing, is an internal issue in the bcm but a scan tool will help you,also check the fuses on the fuse block under the hood and on the fuse block on the passenger side
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I checked for codes with a scanner, and didn't get any codes also checked fuses and all is ok
Expert:  Edgar replied 2 years ago.
Does the scan tool read any data in the body control module? Also check the clutch switch, is mounted on the firewall by the clutch pedal
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
don't know how to check the body control module. Did check the fluid level in the cluck and added a little fluid. When you insert the key, the seat memory doesn't work and the interior lights don't come on. code on the dash says "serv. tire mon. sys" then changes to "service engine soon" then changes again to "check tire pressure".
