G​ood afternoon, I hope you are doing great. My name is***** am a GM technician and would be happy to assist you.

​It sounds to me like we do in fact have a faulty new bcm. The hmi module does not and can not affect remote entry operations, and if the bcm did not program correctly then none of the door locks would be working. Since the power distribution is all over the place that tells me it is a bcm fault, not at all uncommon on these, a couple months ago my dealer put 4 in one car before we finally got one that worked correctly

Ok so tried two new bcm front door locks still do not work and get an error message and software kicks out every time we try to communicate with the keyless entry module, everything else on Tahoe works and functions correctly except the two power locks on front doors and the key less entry ? ? ?
Chevy Mechanic: Gabriel Grey, Auto Service Technician replied 5 months ago

Ok I see. If everything is programmed and installed and the problem is still present then I think we are going to have a problem with the theft module. These have a separate module that controls theft features, and if this is not working properly it could affect individual door circuits because it will think the car is locked. The part is called the keyless entry module(remote control door lock receiver) and it is sold and available online

Where is that module located ? If it’s behind passenger rear quarter panel it has been replaced also
Chevy Mechanic: Gabriel Grey, Auto Service Technician replied 5 months ago

I believe these are mounted in the driver's door panel, I am not 100% as I know they switched them on the newer models, I will check the workshop manual when I get to the shop tomorrow and double check

Cool thank you sir, the module I replaced was the rke / tps receiver just under pass quarter glass
Chevy Mechanic: Gabriel Grey, Auto Service Technician replied 5 months ago

Okay good to know. I believe that is the transceiver/signal module

Have you had a chance to check that workshop manual yet?
Chevy Mechanic: Gabriel Grey, Auto Service Technician replied 5 months ago

Yes I did, sorry for the delay, things got a little hectic here yesterday. These do list a separate door lock control module that is mounted in the driver's door, so that would be the next thing I would inspect/replace
