Has the BCM been checked for codes? Have any?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Sorry, what is BCM? If it is the computer you are referring to, is there a way to check for a code?
Expert:  JHoop replied 6 years ago.
No way to check for a code without a scanner. GM Tech 2. I have all the testing procedures yet it requires a scanner that has BCM(body control module) reading capabilities.

That cargo area message must be fixed first. It is a lower number GM code and GM requires the lowest code numbers fixed first.

I have locations of that system. The GM charts require the correct scanner to test that system.

We have had this issue before, and it seems the area where the sensors are is very sensitive, so if we knew the location of the sensors, we could make sure the area was clear and not sensins something to prevent the top from going down.

OK. Do you park under a tree? Drains work good? Rails are clear of debris?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Park in a garage, rails are clear of debris and as far as I knowthe drains work good.
