Hi here is the correct info you are looking for BODY CONTROL MODULE (BCM) REMOVAL Disconnect the remote battery negative cable from the terminal on the shock tower. The Junction Block and Body Control Module (BCM) are attached to each other. After removal they can be separated. Remove Junction Block / Body Control Module from vehicle. Refer to Group 8O, Power Distribution Systems for Removal and Installation. With the Junction Block/BCM removed from the vehicle, separate the BCM from the Junction Block. Remove the two BCM attaching screws and release the two BCM locking latches from the Junction Block. Disconnect BCM from the Junction Block NOTE: The Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) module is attached to the BCM with three screws. This must be transferred (if equipped) to the new BCM if being replaced. NOTE: If BCM is replaced, the VTSS must be enabled in the new BCM via the DRB lll® in order to start the vehicle. INSTALLATION For installation, reverse the above procedures. JUNCTION BLOCK (JB) DESCRIPTION An electrical Junction Block (JB) is located in the left endcap of the instrument panel Junction Block Location The JB combines the functions previously provided by a separate fuseblock module and relay center. It also serves to simplify and centralize numerous electrical components, as well as to distribute electrical current to many of the accessory systems in the vehicle. It eliminates the need for numerous splice connections and serves in place of a bulkhead connector between many of the engine compartment, instrument panel, and body wire harnesses. The JB is positioned on a mounting bracket up and under the left instrument panel. It is secured by three screws. The JB is concealed behind the left instrument panel endcap. The left instrument panel endcap is a snap-fit fuse access cover that conceals the JB fuses. A fuse puller and spare fuse holders are located on the back of the endcap, as well as the fuse layout to ensure proper fuse identification. The left instrument panel endcap must be removed to access components other than the fuses in the JB. OPERATION All of the current entering and leaving the JB does so through wire harnesses, which are connected to the JB through integral connector receptacles molded into the JB housing. The JB houses blade-type fuses, blade-type automatic resetting circuit breakers, full International Standards Organization (ISO) relays, and ISO micro-relays. Internal connection of all the JB circuits is accomplished by an intricate network of hard wiring and bus bars. Refer to Junction Block in the Component Index of Group 8W - Wiring Diagrams for complete circuit diagrams. The fuses, circuit breakers, relays, and are available for service replacement. The JB unit cannot be repaired and is only serviced as an assembly. If any internal circuit or the JB housing is faulty or damaged, the entire Junction Block assembly must be replaced.
