Saturn 2002 l 100 4 door......... no codes to id
Saturn Mechanic: Pete, Saturn Mechanic replied 8 months ago

When you say no codes is this that you have no codes set at at all in any computer in the vehicle?

I have not set any codes....... all I have done was plug in the computer
Saturn Mechanic: Pete, Saturn Mechanic replied 8 months ago

O.k.,was this a computer or scan tool that can read all computers in your vehicle to check for codes?We want to make sure or to see if any codes are showing up in any of the computers especially the BCM ( body control module computer)

Sent my body control module for my 2002 Saturn L100 to be repaired . When returned and installed ,was informed I would have to do the 10 minute 3 times to re- key the unit. I performed this method ,and the security light continue to flash with out stopping, did not work. I went to the junk yard and got another BCM , which I got it to work , but the next day , I had the same problem. I unplugged the BCM for a few hours and try to start again ,and it started, but only once.So I have 2 BCM doing 2 difference things. I appreciate your expertise on both situations ! Thank You
Saturn Mechanic: Pete, Saturn Mechanic replied 8 months ago

I apologize for the delay.

When you checked for fault codes were all computers in your vehicle checked for codes with a scan tool that is fully compatible with your model vehicle?Some scan tools will only read engine codes and we need to see what codes are setting in the BCM and other computers using a fully compatible scan tool.

Let me know,thanks Pete.

I am unwilling to pay hundreds of dollars again for some computer scanning, when I found a BCM module at the junk yard that works, periodicly. I contacted you for a less exspensive option, do you have one ?
Saturn Mechanic: Pete, Saturn Mechanic replied 8 months ago

I will open your question up for others here to see if someone else can assist further on this as there may be others here that may have more info on what to check or do with this issue.I hope you can get this resolved with ease.No need to reply to my last post here unless it is a last resort as it will keep your question locked to me and others will not be able to view it.If you feel you want to continue to work with me on this feel free to reply at any time but keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair this without seeing your vehicle.

Thanks Pete
