hi there

im cam, a licenced diagnostic tech

the symptoms you are describing are indicating a problem with the bcm (body control module)

scan the bcm and see if you have communication and if there are any codes

if no communication, then the bcm will need to be replaced and programmed

if you do not have access to a scanner then i would recommen a hard reset

this involves removing both battery terminals and holding them together for 30 mins. this can reset the bcm and if it does it again it will need to be replaced

let me know how you make out!

I tried the cables together for a couple minutes but not thirty.
Chevy Mechanic: camerontech, Auto Mechanic replied 7 months ago

i would try at lease 15 mins.

if that does not work than accessing the bcm with a scanner is the next step.

i ahve had a few with your exact same symptoms and it has been the bcm has failed
