Hey. I have a 2011 chevy Cruze that recently has had flood damage. Well the bcm lays right in the floor broad and it got under water and ruined it. the bcm to get replaced threw the dealer ends up in the thousands because of the programming where it is all vin locked together. So what I am wondering is where this bcm is vin locked to only my car and other ones out of junk yards wont connect and work on my car is that could I go to the junk yard and get the bcm and also get the ecm and pcm all three off the same vehicle there and bring it home and plug it up because I cant think of anywhere there could be data store to still have it vin locked. I hope I'm doing this right because it's my first time. Thanks for any help you can give.

Unfortunately not. I purchased the car from a boy down the road cheap thinking water may have just got in the starter and had it froze up which ithad done that also but the bcm fot ruined also. the car already had a rebuilt title

I think with the right "scan tool" you can reprogram the VIN on the module. However, that means going down the programming rabbit hole.

The BCM is 166 bucks (plus shipping) at Rockauto .

I cannot imagine it being more than another couple hundred bucks to get it programmed into the car. Maybe Maven or someone else knowledgeable can chime in with the shop costs. But I wouldn't expect more than an hour of shop time.

What I was told was is that I can purchase a bcm from them (387.00)or purchase a new bcm from anywhere and bring it to them with my old one and they could do the programming with just the two bcm. but after the programming and I bring it back home and install the new bcm in my vehicle I have to then drive the car back to the dealership for more programming
