Default 2006 vue won't stay running

My 2006 2.2l Vue won't stay running. The vehicle will turn over, start and run for 2 to 3 seconds and then dies. Additionally the interior lights will not turn off (i was able to turn the dome light off manually but the front cabin lights will not turn off) and the electronic door locks don't work. All of the problems started today. Any thoughts on where to start trouble shooting?

The body control module (BCM) affects door locks, interior lighting and engine fuel control.

Does the dash SECURITY light flash or remain ON steady after engine dies?

I "think" I recall a service bulletin for 2006 defective BCM's. I'll dig through archives to see if there's a range of VIN's.

In meantime you could disconnect battery ground cable for a few minutes, after making sure you have security code for radio (if enabled).

Reconnect the cable and turn key ON for a couple of minutes before advancing key to START/

I located the bulletin - see post # 3 of following thread ... it does mention disconnecting battery ground cable as possible solution - good luck.
