I have been lamenting my issues with a damaged BCM (probably my fault) lately, but then I saw this video and saw/heard what happens when things go REALLY wrong (example starts about 9m into video)
haha I love hoovies garage, and I’ve seen that video! Bad BCMs can be quite troubling. What’s up with yours?I have been lamenting my issues with a damaged BCM (probably my fault) lately, but then I saw this video and saw/heard what happens when things go REALLY wrong (example starts about 9m into video)
I was trying to figure out how to resolve the reversed pass window motor control and seem to have shorted 12v to the main data line from the driver window switch to the BCM, now there are various communication errors and I can only control the windows from the switches in their respective doors. As soon as I have $200 I shall fix this issue, might even happen in the next couple weeks. Including the aforementioned issue, there are only five things left on my list of things to do/solve/fix.
finish fitting radio controls
replace bent rear z-link/watts-link
make some sort of climate controls work
replace & reprogram BCM
Were you able to make the Cruze steering wheel work or is that also from the Verano?@Blasirl I used the entire electrical system from the Buick, engine harness, body harness, ecu, bcm, onstar, climate control module, radio, anything that would be problematic to make work with the Buick parts....
How did you change the airbag cover?@Blasirl Cruze wheel, but only because it has the verano clockspring, airbag guts, steering sensor, and wheel harness. Cosmetically it is a Cruze wheel, but not on the inside.
I still plan to do a better, more condesed version of this thread after I get a few more things taken care of with it. Be warned, I'm not used to taking pictures of things while I'm working so there arent as many pictures as even I was hoping for
Any Chance of some pictures?@Blasirl The cover is just held in place by some tabs, fairly easy to pop it off and put the replacement on
This change was only needed because the cruze has 1 igniter and the buick has 2 (using the cruze airbag and the buick control module would result in a "service airbag" light)
This is a 100% stock Verano exhaust? While I like how it sounds, I hear turbo and it is pretty loud for a Buick, just sayin'Replaced rear trans mount with a solid bushing one (Rear Lower Transmission Mount) due to continued annoyance caused by the ammount of "flop" in the drivetrain. Took these two (only one vid alowed per post for me atm, other vid in next post) while I was at it.
Most likely I will be showing what it sounds like with the main muffler bypassed (via a "loud-valve") in the future if I get there
To answer your question about the 30 sec rule, probably to help stop double posting. I've been know to double post on accident and that is usually because the website is slow and I see nothing happening so I hit post again and again.(Anyone know why the forum requires 30sec between posts? I'm just curious to know what prompted this restriction)
