My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

From what you have described here this sounds like a fault with the BCM ( body control module) itself.The BCM monitors and controls these functions and if it has an internal fault it will need to be replaced and programmed.Programming has to be done by a GM dealer.

If you have not had the fault codes read out with a compatible scan tool this needs to be done.If any codes are set in the BCM the codes will need to be diagnosed to then locate and repair this fault.I do suspect this is an internal BCM fault causing this issue needing replaced.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
