The bcm has to be set up with a tech 2, you have to set the bpp sensor and restraint id. Usually once the bcm is programmed it becomes locked and normally cannot be programed to the vin of your car, plus you have to get a bcm with the same options and engine size.I would have it scanned for the codes and see it it can even be set up.
