Want to avoid costly dealer programming fees and locksmiths?
We can help!
This tested replacement body control module (BCM) is available with our programming service.
To receive a plug and play replacement BCM that requires no additional programming, we will need your original unit to transfer the data to the replacement.
This process will allow you to start your vehicle with your current set of keys and transfer your VIN to a replacement unit – without needing to hire a locksmith or pay for dealer programming.
How it works:
- Simply purchase the replacement BCM by clicking the Buy Now button above.
- When packaging your original BCM – include your name and order number provided in the order confirmation email.
- Using any shipping service – ship us your original BCM. Address will be provided via email after checkout.
✓ That’s it, you’re done!
Once we receive your BCM, we will the transfer the data from your original to the replacement you’ve ordered, typically with 24 to 48 hours.
A tracking number will be emailed to your inbox as soon as the replacement has been shipped.
Re-install and you’re ready to go, no programming or calibration needed.
The entire process from start to finish typically takes 5 to 7 business days including transit times. (From your door to ours, back to yours.)
Our tested, OEM pre-owned units include a hassle free 2-year warranty.
Part number received may differ slightly depending on the unit, but it will be compatible.
In most cases we will be able to extract your data regardless of water or flood damage, physical damage, etc.
Since we would be transferring your data from the original unit to the replacement, we do not require your VIN or keys.
We do not include a shipping label for your original unit, you will have to pay to ship the unit to us. USPS Priority Mail via Flat Rate Box or Envelope would be the quickest and most cost-effective way.
Part numbers are important, be sure to order a replacement that matches your original part number.
Supplies may be limited.
“Why do I need programming?”
In many modern vehicles, components are equipped with a theft deterrent called an immobilizer system. Things like the keys, ignition lock modules and computers are all synced together within the system. If the programming of a component within the immobilizer system doesn’t match the other components of the system – the immobilizer system will not allow your vehicle to start, or other modules not to function.
If you replace an BCM without programming the unit first, the vehicle will fail to start – that’s where we come in!
By taking the original data from your old BCM and transferring it to our replacement BCM– you will not have to worry about programming your computer using local dealers or locksmiths since we handle the programming for you – saving you 100’s sometimes 1000’s of dollars.
Some common symptoms of a bad BCM include:
- Accessories no longer work
- Accessories function erratically
- Battery drain
- Dash warning lights
- Failure or difficult to start
- Security system issues
