HI,

Possible causes are a bad ground wire, faulty body control module or ip cluster. I need to get the last 8 of the vin to pull the wiring schematics.

I removed and cleaned grounding points under center console as well as two near battery and one on ds near abs module

Hi, My name is ***** ***** for the delay.

I will do my best to assist you.

first, lets try something simple,,

Remove both battery cables from the battery, turn on the ignition, touch and hold both the - and the + cables together for 5 seconds, turn off the ignition, then re-install them back to the battery

let me know if this fixed the problem

I do the cable trick to roll windows back up, it stays working for a minute or two, I can flip passenger side door lock and every thing works for a minute then goes out. Could it be loosing the 5 volt feed thru sensors? All engine sensors and I mean all, r brand new

and,,you already replaced the bcm?

Yep
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I have very good skills in electrical applications, I cleaned the ground tabs under center console as well as two near battery and one near and pump

lets try something here,,

disconnect the wire connectors to the pcm and clean the terminals with electronics parts cleaner,,sometimes these will get dirty with carbon and such..

if all is clean,i would think your problem is the instrument cluster itself
