View Full Version : Body Control Module problem?

07-09-2004, 08:27 PM
I am having some problems with my lights and I suspect it may be the BCM. When I press the break or shift gears my headlights and my interior(dash) lights flicker for a second. Also if I start my car with my fan for the ac then I get a SVS light. Can all of this be connected or are they two different problems? I know there are a lot of experts with lighting on this board so I am hoping someone can help me out. The only aftermarket thing I have done with my lights are silverstar healights and I do not think they are the problem.

The flicker is quite possibly just related to current draw. I know I have seen this happen on several cars during a shift (auto tranny) and also when pressing brakes, using power windows, etc. I can see my compass/temp in my rearview mirror flicker when the sunroof is opened. I'd imagine that's what you're seeing.

You may want to have your starting/charging system checked. It seems like your car might be throwing codes/flickering lights if the system isn't 100%.
