Nope, just another IC chip glitch, try removing the fuses for the radio and nav system, wait about 5 minutes then put them back in, if that didn't straighten it out then the dealer is your next stop, they most likely will.uave to remove it and send out the main control unit and have it repaired then put it back in and reset the BCM.

Thanks, if the removal of the fuses doesn't work I can imagine what the dealer will sock me.

Or you could find an aftermarket replacement unit and have it installed, both ways will still be expensive if the power reset doesn't work.
