Customer Question
I have a 2000 GMC...
I have a 2000 GMC Sierra and someone tried to steal it. I took it to a Gmac dealer to get it repaired and they did expect for the feature that unlocks the doors when you remove the key from the ignition. Any ideas?

Hello, my name is***** is a feature that is programmed into the body control module. You either have a wiring issue still from the lock cylinder to the BCM or it is more likely that the programming in the BCM was not done correctly. I would take it back and ask them to program it correctly.

I Ann having an issue because the insurance paid for it and they put in recycled part and gm parts and told me that I have no warranty after they were done with everything. I wasn't told of that in the first place
GMC Mechanic: FIX IT MAN, Master Technician replied 1 year ago

With used parts it is hard to say if it is even configured to do this. All that can be done is to access the BCM with a factory scan tool to see if that is an option and then turn it on. It depends on the parts that were installed.

The master cylinder was a gym part and the other parts were recycled
GMC Mechanic: FIX IT MAN, Master Technician replied 1 year ago

The master cylinder would not have anything to do with it. The lock cylinder where the key gets inserted would. If that is new then this is a programming issue.

The housing is the gm part. I looked at the paper work
GMC Mechanic: FIX IT MAN, Master Technician replied 1 year ago

Even as a GM part it has to be properly programmed and configured.
