How does this work?

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required.

Have you been able to get the vehicle scanned for any codes?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I have an OBD and no codes show up....
Expert:  Mechanic01 replied 2 months ago.

none of the lock functions work at all?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Only while I'm driving. Rain sensor on windshield isn't working either. mirrors won't move at anytime...
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Tried disconnecting the battery to reset the computer....no luck. Must be a fuse somewhere??
Expert:  Mechanic01 replied 2 months ago.

Sorry ive been on the phone with another customer, That would be the first thing I would check and because of the complexities of the system I would check all the fuse with a multimeter.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Tried all that. Everything is in tact...
Expert:  Mechanic01 replied 2 months ago.

Can your scanner get into the bcm and request any functions?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I don't think so...
