once I park I change all the fuses but I haven't change the bcm all together
Chevy Mechanic: Roy, import/domestic specialest replied 2 months ago

no, I asked if you disconnect the bcm connector from the bcm, will the fuse still blow with key on.

that will tell me that the bcm may be causing the issue

I put the key in the ignition and turn it to the start position but im not gettin no power in the car and the fuse still good
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
my key is stuck in my ignition
Chevy Mechanic: Roy, import/domestic specialest replied 2 months ago

i Told you not to start the car?????

ok, the fuse held which tells me the bcm is the issue causing the failure. I would start by replacing the bcm. it is a module that has to be programmed by someone with a scan tool. it is not a plug and play unit.

plug the old one back in and see if the key comes out
