Default Re: comparing the Lseries V6 to the 4 cyl

When replacing with a used bcm there is a relearn for the security system. The odometer is stored in the bcm. I have started my car and disconnected the bcm and it continued to run however it would not restart until I installed the original bcm. Many body functions are controlled by the bcm, dash functions and accessories. I would imagine the the sunroof would not work if I installed a bcm from a non sunroof car. But the bcm could be programmed with a dealer type programmer to make it work.
The big thing is the odometer if you care on a car this old. I have a 2000 LS1 that that shows 695,000 miles and I have read that the odometer function is usually the first failure. Changing the 1 to a 6 in the first column. I bought this car and the long time owners said it had about 200,000 miles on it.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
