      Very dissapointed in the product and will now reconsider whether ordering from Advance is worth the trouble. This is not the first time I have received defective parts from Advance Auto.

          Item was delivered to the store overnight. Installation takes less than 15 min, and is an easy slip right above the emergency break peddle to instal. This computer is pretty much plug and play. After installing, a key relearn is required, but no other programing is needed. The dealer can program your VIN into the computer (which is required if you want the airbag light to go off), but it is not needed if all you want is for your car to start again. Everything else (ex: door locks when moving out of park, interior lights when doors open) can be reset through the stock radio.

                  I read a previous review of a guy saying he plugged it up and his car started.My first plan was to get the new bcm and bring to a shop.(more money)I got the bcm, plugged it up, did the keyrelearn steps (which can be found online,google it) and in 30 minutes my car was running.I do see airbag light on so the bcm may still need some additional programming by the dealer but atleast my car runs now.

                      the passlock sensor caused a problem that shorted the bcm. vehicle sat in driveway for over two months while i tried to get information about weather the cardone module or any other module new or rebuilt would START the car and save a very expensive wrecker bill to take vehicle to dealer for programming. [...]. most of the programming from the previous vehicle remained in the module. the only things that does not work are the interior lights when door is open and the airbag light is on. radio is locked but due to power failure not the bcm.

                          No Toya, this is a body control computer. In automotive electronics, body control module is a generic term for an electronic control unit responsible for monitoring and controlling various electronic accessories in a vehicle's body. Typically in a car the BCM controls the power windows, power mirrors, air conditioning, immobilizer system, central locking, etc. An engine control unit (ECU) is a type of electronic control unit that controls a series of actuators on an internal combustion engine to ensure optimal engine performance. It does this by reading values from a multitude of sensors within the engine bay, interpreting the data using multidimensional performance maps (called lookup tables), and adjusting the engine actuators accordingly. Before ECUs, air-fuel mixture, ignition timing, and idle speed were mechanically set and dynamically controlled by mechanical and pneumatic means.

                          bob; i had the same problem on my 02 impala when the passlock sensor went bad and shorted the bcm. vehicle would not start or even make a sound because of the security system disabling the starter and fuel injecters. if your car has the passlock 2 system like mine, i would suggest replacement of the passlock sensor which is located on the ignition lock cylinder. this sensor is usually to blame for bcm failure. the cardone bcm i bought started my car after doing relearn procedure. the old bcm would not accept relearn. the relearn is simple to do if you don't know already. the parts guys in your town should be able to help you with that. the replacement bcm still had programming in it. i do not think the dealer needs the old module, they have all the information they will need to program the new bcm by using tech 2 programmer entering the vin number of your car. hope this helps.

                          I would suggest you to have a guidance from a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

                          Kevin the King of Auto Parts from AAP was absolutely correct when he said this computer should be ready to work out of the box. My car would not start. would not relearn, lights were on. after installation of the Cardone computer, did relearn and car started right up. everything is working as they should be. All I need to do now is get the radio unlocked. Thank you very much Kevin the King of Auto Parts from AAP. You saved me a trip to the den of outlaws. You deserve a raise.

                          This unit MUST be flash programmed at a CAPABLE dealership or GOOD auto service garage. The unit is VIN specific.
