The Body Control Module (BCM) could be considered a central organizational module for your vehicle. It streamlines the manufacturing and troubleshooting aspects of electronic modules by housing the modules into one, central unit instead of each function having its own device. It also coordinates the operating functions of many non-engine related ancillary items as well as security features. If your BCM begins to malfunction, you will notice a negative effect on the operation of the various parts that the Body Control Module commands and it’s likely that you’ll experience one or more of the following symptoms:
There is a whole host of intricate and finely-calibrated control modules that are designed to keep your vehicle in precise working order. An imbalance in any one of them could prove to be disastrous to the optimal functioning of your vehicle. Here are a few (of many) components that we service, their acronyms, and common names.
As technology continues to advance and move forward, so does the way our vehicles operate and run. It seems more and more parts rely on computers, sensors, and capacitors than ever before. The ECM or Electronic Control Module (Engine Control Module) and PCM or Powertrain Control Module are both examples of these technological advancements. There are many factors that affect their life span.
