yea, thats what I think Ima do.The BCM will need to be programmed with the VIN. I'd take it in to a dealership or independent shop and get it replaced/programmed with a remanufactured BCM.
Once programmed, a BCM cannot be reprogrammed. I'm kind of curious how you came to the diagnostic that the "bcm went out" on your vehicle. Care to share the symptoms?
i believe my problem came from me letting my brother try to fix my trunk release, he put a wire on the positive battery, and started poking around in the driver side kick panel making the trunk pop,Am I supposed to be looking at darkened areas near the connector pins? If so, the source of the problem may be beyond the BCM. There are current-limiting resistors that protect the circuits in case pins are shorted to the ground. The usual way for widesperead burnt spots is when a >= 12V source is shorted to a 5V circuit. I wouldn't feel comfortable just throwing a new BCM at it. You need to take it in to a shop that can diagnose it properly.
See im new to the Malibu game, I read sumwhere on United Malibus or this site really cant remember that as long as you get the same id number that they will work, well is there a way I can make my fuel pump come on til I save enough money for a new one then take it to the dealer?You can't expect to drop in a BCM that was VINed for another vehicle and expect it to be able to communicate with the ECM and TCM. If the seller led you to believe it'll work, he should've known better.
