Ok thank you! I'm glad to hear that because I have to have the correct part number when ordering the new BCM and from what I understand, you get that off the old BCM so if my BCM had come from another Saturn at a junkyard I couldn't be sure that it's the correct one or part number, so thank you for clarifying that for me :)
I was looking on ebay to find a NEW OEM BCM and I came across this listing, could you check this out real quick and tell me if this would be feasible?
They actually have a brick and mortar business in New Jersey and so I called and spoke with the guy, Theo, and he said that in these particular Saturn models, 99.99% of the time the BCM's in these cars are 100% repairable and to ship my old one to him and the day he gets it, he repairs it THAT day and ships it back on that same day as well, for a fraction of the price. They guarantee the work and it comes with a warranty as well. He said he replaces the microchip processor or something like that, to where it is blank like the new ones so they can be programmed. He does the programming if you are local and able to bring him the vehicle, otherwise I would take it to the local Chevrolet dealer where my friend works (I guess they are the substitute for the closed down Saturn dealerships, but he said it will work just as good as a new BCM, what do you think? Is that possible?
Do you think I should go that route? Or am I better off just buying a new one?
Thank you so, So, SO much for all your time and effort. I appreciate the assistance very much!
Hope you are doing well :)
