Dealer says NO COMM WITH BCM
Well should have known better...Bought this "mechanics special" with main problem of a shot trannie(cooler line broke) and some front control arms needing replacement. That's all taken care of and car runs quite nicely, and everything is working properly save a LF --- on the DIC readout AND when I went to a "local"(39 miles away) dealer to have them program 2 new remote fobs to the car, they came back and said ..no comm with BCM, can't do the program, want to have us diagnose it at $110. per hr??
I've found the BCM and pulled both upper and lower connectors to check things there, the upper has dielectric grease and looked good on pin integrity both harness and BCM. The lower looked good for integrity, but had no grease.
I have a cheap code reader for OBD11 and that works fine at the DLC. I would REALLY APPRECIATE someone who could tell me what I'm missing here for further investigation?
