6/5/2013 HouseCallAutoDisconnect the battery cables and short them together for 5 minutes. Perfectly safe thing to do no worry. There is a condition called logic lock that is often corrected this way. If both battery cables are removed and no longer touching the battery nothing bad can happen when you touch them together. See if this resolves the issue and if not let me know on the update of this post.

mikeamak - 2002 Chevrolet Malibu - Body & Interior - 6/3/2013Mileage is at 71,000. Interior lights were not shutting off recently when car was shut off. Power door locks also not working. Can this be a faulty Micro Relay in the Fuse Panel.

shegen - 2009 Chevrolet Malibu - Body & Interior - 6/2/2013I am a retired ASE Master tech in 2004. All indicators point to a failed BCM(did Dielectric grease)what I would like to know is if I install a new BCM Do I have to go to a dealer to get it flashed-or-will it recognise the key reisiter upon startup? Cant spell
I want to know what problem you are trying to fix by replacing the BCM. Yes the BCM will have to be flashed, they are not plug and play. Has to be done with a Tech 2 .
I agree with you on the bad BCM 100% and by the way I just had an 09 malibu with a start and stall in two seconds, no codes anywhere. Injectors were being shut down immobilizer / anti-theft, no security lamp illumination during this and no anti-theft codes at all. Bad BCM. GM warranted the BCM. Yours may also be covered. Too much of a coincidence to have no wipers, no cruise, erratic door locks. BCM controls all. Would not be surprised if you were also losing brake lamp illumination. Just goes to show that there are issues with GM BCM's in at least this body platform.

Chris_W - 2005 Chevrolet Tahoe - Body & Interior - 6/2/2013My wife reports the driver's side rear window is "off track". States she put it down, let heat out of car, put it back up and it fell back down. She was able to lift it by hand and keep it up. Approximately 2 weeks ago, my son tried to close the same window while ...
Replace the regulator assembly, and if I may add, I personally would not use any other brand except a genuine ACDELCO replacement part which you will have to ask for specifically or else the majority of auto parts suppliers will sell you anything but DELCO. Buy the regulator that has the regulator and motor together as one unit. The part # is 15135972 but be very careful when ordering this from anyone because there is a mistake out there in parts listing software. 15135972 is being advertised by many online sellers as that it includes the motor but many people have ordered it and received part # 19260050 which is also an ACDELCO regulator but it has no motor, so insist that you receive 15135972 (left rear - 05 Tahoe) with no substitutions.

bratt802 - 2002 Chevrolet Trailblazer - Body & Interior - 5/30/2013how is that done?
chad.busse - 2004 Chevrolet Trailblazer - Body & Interior - 5/29/2013blower moter is running, air/heat comes out all vents except "face" vents.
5/29/2013 CVOThe Mode Door Actuator controls the direction of airflow. It selects which way air flows through the different ducts. If your climate control system has lost the ability to control which vents the air comes out of, the MDA has probably failed. Both the ATC and MTC systems use this device.
stan - 2002 Chevrolet Trailblazer - Body & Interior - 5/24/2013When I switched the control to the floor or the defroster the noise switches to a tapping noise.
