All I can say is.... THANK YOU BEN!!!!! IT STARTED RIGHT UP!!!

what a nightmare this car has been. But I cannot and I mean this to everyone who responded... THANK ALL OF YOU SO VERY MUCH. I would buy you all a cold one if I could.

Only issue left:
No radio
No internal overhead lights or review mirror lights
No door locks
no truck release.

May be some other things as well. Power windows work, wipers work, turn and emergency lights ok. Headlights work.

Also need to kill the security light, its still on solid. But the car RUNS!!!
Just to be sure. You sent the PCM and not the BCM. The PCM is under the drivers side and the BCM is under the pass side. The BCM will control all that that is not working. Make sure you check ALL your fuses. Drivers side, pass side and engine compartment.

Yes the PCM went to Ben and I got it back. The car now starts. But several options are not working. From what I can tell this looks to be BCM related. Door locks and trunk release, meh... interior dome lights and radio, that is annoying. As well as the FOB doesnt work either, and there is no door chimes.

Just not sure where to go with this now. I checked all 3 fuse panels, nothing showing any issues at all.

Then I would say BCM issues. I think Ben can handle that as well. You may want contact him and find out.

Unfortunatly no, Ben stated he does not deal wit BCMs. I have another one I bought on eBay, matcing stock number and reprogrammed to my VIN. came out of a 2005 GT, like mine. I tired it before I sent the PCM to Ben but with no luck. Going to try again.

Why oh why would a module control door locks, interior lights, radio, etc.? What were they thinking?

Nice to have the car running but no radio etc. will be very frustrating.

Also, does anyone know how to permanently kill the Security light on the dash? I have no need for it now and its still on solid.

Ok any recommendations on what I can do about my BCM and power issues? Does it need t be reprogrammed? If so how would I go about this? Is there a tool can use? Thanks
