I have a 2007 saturn sky, (salvaged) the insurance comp, says it runs and drives. They are also one of north Americas largest salvage/none salvage/repo. Company in the country. Which they test there cars and inform u weather it starts with a jump, dose not start, or runs and drives, my car was labeled "runs and drives" but when the car arrived to my place via truck. The bcm was missing and so was the battery. So I went and got a used bcm, and new fully charged battery installed it. Only to later find out that it was the wrong year bcm, so I uninstalled and sent back and got another used one off ebay, this one dose match my car. Installed it. But the anti theft lock(small car with lock) is on, along with airbag and engine light. When I go to start the car I get nothing, not even a crank, and the anti lock icon dose not flash or blink, it is solid. Things I have tried, the 10 min re-learn. The first time I installed the correct bcm I tried the 10 min re-learn and the anti lock icon disappeared so I proceeded to turn off for 10/20 seconds, and back on again, when I turnd it back to the on, well it started clicking and blinking along with my park/shift light. It did that for five min, so I turned it off. Cuz I didn't want my battery to go dead. And every time since it has not went out(anti lock). So I went and got a new battery, made sure it was fully charged and tried again. But still didn't work. It did not blink just stayd solid. Also radio is locked.
Try having it scanned for code/s or do it yourself and see if any code/s comes up-One thing for sure you got a burn deal here-No BCM-I wonder what else is missing-

Thank u for the reply, I had it sent the the dealer in hopes that im just missing something that that expensive. Nor sure if I mentioned all light, horn, interior stuff, trunk, remote key, everything, other then the locked radio works.

Just to add to this one as far as the starting concern goes learning the pass lock is a 30 min relearn process its only 10 mins using the gm service stall. You have to make sure you have a good fully charged battery then try to start it then let the key stay in the run position. Then wait till the security light stops flashing or stays on solid. Then repeat it 2 more times then after the third cycle the engine should start.

Hey guys, had it sent to a dealer and was told that my theft deturent module was not communicating with bcm due to bad wiring coming from and to the "TDM", had replaced and my 2007 saturn sky started right up. It is my belief that when the top was damaged it was on a rainy day and the bcm wiring got damaged. Thanks hope this helps. Ps, the dealer want as dreading as I thought, I mean everyone says bad things about a dealer and leave the fear that they will over charge u. Well sure I paid $536 but I had the problem done right and ur under warranty by the best in the game (GM)
