put new battery in 2000 Park Avenue Ultra, after a week my battery gauge reads ???? and interior lights don't work, the security light is on, the traction light doesn't work, trunk switch quit working and alternator went out. Replaced alternator but same things are not working.
Sounds like a BCM (Body Control Module) failure. The BCM controls everything you mentioned that is not working. HTH. -Jim
Where would the module be
Where would the module be location?
Behind the glovebox. There are two modules there attached to the same bracket. One is the Programmer for the HVAC system, the other is the BCM. (The BCM is the Module located closest to the firewall/engine compartment). It can be accessed by laying on the floor on pssgr side and removing the bottom panels under the dash. The Negative battery cable must be removed from battery FIRST before replacing the BCM!
Hey did you ever get it fixed? i have the exact same issue with my 2001 park ave ultra! was it the BCM? Did you get it fixed? please let me know
Yes it was the CM. After it was installed I was told by my mechanic that Buick has a propitiatory code that they couldn't install so not everything is working like my airbags and others. Charged $700.00 for this. Will never go back to them.
I had the same problem and the above fix worked. thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!
