Default Re: BCM bad

I looked at that picture in your album. Is that BCM from an Ion? If so, then, yes, they really are very different between years. In my 2006 Ion 2, you can't see any of the components until you've desoldered the main board from the connector board.

Here's what the 2006 Ion 2 one looks like (you can see the empty pads near the lower-middle where I removed the voltage regulator to use on the BCM that's in the car). The 8-pin IC I'm talking about is just to the left of the big IC in the lower right corner.

The OP has a genuine Tec2. That isn't exactly somebody who's just used to changing oil. It was also mentioned in this thread that BCMs are permanently married to the car in which they're first installed. So, which is true, that, or that people have had good luck with used ones, or that the dealers can reprogram the used ones?
