I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

Ok, I dont believe the wiring or other components of the blind spot monitor would be affected, but to be sure, I need to get the last 6 of the vin number to pull the schematics including the routing of the harness for it

Last 6 is 163504The blind spot monitor was working correctly before the actual evaporator got clogged, which also killed the blower motor too. After the blower motor was replaced my blind spot monitor started working intermittently then only in cold weather and now always off and blinking in the dash as an idiot light.

I will have to opt out as I dont have the needed schematics. If another expert doe, they will post here to you
