    I've NOW contacted yet another Independant "Mobil Programmer" -- these guys will be #4 -- to try-come-scan the car sometime over the next two days ~ with the diff-being here THESE guys rather only do Stock "Factory Programming" proceedures, and THEY SAY they'll be able to verify PCM/VCM & BCM/TCM communications-operations...at a cost of $125 bucks "...per mobilization" ~ wtf : ?

    What's the point in "Disabling" the Passlock II System - just to get it "running" - until AFTER I can get the BCM to show-a-pulse for actually recieving communications and then CONTROLLING the stuff it's supposed to ~ like the Door-Locks, HVAC "Mode Control", Head-lights, Dome-lights, and - HOPEFULLY TOO! - the "Injection-System Disable Circut", etc., too : ?

    THIS VEHICLE HAS BEEN DISABLED FOR "REPAIR" ACTIONS TAKEN BY A GM DEALERSHIP -- THAT THEY THEN REFUSED TO RECTIFY -- FOR OVER 6 MONTHS NOW.

    Being the only alternative to taking it BACK to any "GM DEALERSHIP" for their subscription to "OEM" Factory-Specific Programming (vs. what the "Hot-Rod Tuners" think they can...and then find-out they CAN'T do ; ) I had a "Mobile Diagnostic Services" firm come-out 'n diagnose the vehicle, and -- after having determined several functions failing dispite valid serial communications data on "The BUS" they determined:

    "BAD BCM ~ REPLACE AND REPROGRAM PRIOR FUTHER DIAGNOSIS"

    So I did that ~ and learned something ELSE that the original "Dealer" servicing the vehicle 6 months ago SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BEFORE TRYING TO "FLASH" THE VEHICLE...that the WRONG BCM P/N had been installed in the Vehicle all-along!

    I had told them (GM Dealership) it was reportedly CHANGED by the previous owners "Tech" that never fixed the car...that they should VERIFY the correct P/N was installed IF they wound-up interfacing the DLC...that's something I HAD THEN ASKED THE TECH ~ which He confirmed "OK" ~ at that time when they'd brought me to see It ~ NOW as "DEAD-WEIGHT" in His Service Bay that first day, so WTF!!!

    So I bought one (from another GM Dealer) to install and -- per-instructions FROM BOTH "Dealer" and "Mobile Diagnostic Services" -- had the latter return to "Reprogram BCM"... : ?

    But because THIS particular BCM comes "Pre-Flashed" -- something no-one told ME! -- basically what-they-did for that $100 bucks was "Verify Communications" (something they'd already done) then initiate the "10-minute Key Relearn" proceedure (I could've done the "30-minute re-learn proceedure") and then crank-it-over...

    And it started-up...and then RAN ~ for the first-time in over 6 months!!!

    All of My Keyless Remote "Lock/Un-Lock" functions are WORKING AGAIN, including "Panic", etc., and too, the "Dome Override" control of the Headlamp System "Daytime Running Lights" (DRL) as-well!

    My "Air Bag" lamp is OFF w/NO DTC's present in that system (had a U-1000 DTC) and we found the "Dome Light Stays On" problem remains ~ as-related to a bad Door Handle Switch, which when actuated tells the BCM someone wants INTO the vehicle and so ILLUMINATE the interior lamps for an entry OR activate the Alarm System/Vehicle Theft Deterrent...and I've never been-so-glad to hear the Horn-Honk'n Lights-Flashin' ~ Hoo-Rah!!!

    My wife drove the car to work this morning "just to see...", and We'll give it to my daughter this weekend ~ 6 months AFTER She started College... : ?
