    Talking BCM ,not VATS indicator problem

    I took my car to 2 dealerships who had trouble diagnosing the no crank problem I was having. It appeared to be the Vats system but the clicking under the glove box should have been our first clue. The fix for this probem turned out to be the BCM, it had filled with rain water somehow. The dealerships were stumped and my twin bro (2000 TA) found the probem from the intermitant clicking comming from under the glove box whenever the PCM was reset or the VATS was reset. Thanks for the help and the fix was,
    1. 210.00 for new BCM
    2. 85.00 for reprommaming

    Im looking at that as we speak and I have yet to figure it out. All the boots from the firewall look good and the door boot, Im kinda stumped right now. Im stoked that I got it done though....and I caulked the BCM around the seam so that should help. Its suppose to rain tonight so Im gonna keep a close eye on it.
