I currently am in possession of "THE TOOL"

The BCM read worked great.

The PIM read DOESN'T WORK....

...if it's still plugged in to the BCM port on THE TOOL. :doh:

oops. Make sure you change the connector over to the PIM connector on THE TOOL.
Kind of thinking I am the tool... I will report back when I program the PIM and BCM with teh Tech2. the modules are junkyard units, BCM,PIM AND ECM all from different VIN/vehicles. heck, even the chassis is a different VIN vehicle. I already had everything running with HPtuners, but I want the VATS stuff to work and I am tired of the security key flashing at me.

This tool works great. The quality of PCB work is really amazing. Great job! thanks!!

Who wants it next?

I read the PIM and BCM, got the codes. YAY! The BCM code worked for the BCM linking in the tech2. tried to link up everything and get VATS/security to work. No luck so far. Have not figured out where to put the PIM code in the tech2. Don't know how to do the special service programming or the security relearn... I'll do some digging and post those questions in another thread.

Where do I get teh immobilizer codes? What's the "security code" I don't have any of the original owners information, my PCM/BCM/PIM are most likely from all different vehicles/VINs

The immobilizer code = the security code and I believe that is tied to the VIN. The code was included on the security card given the original owner and in most cases is long gone. You're going to have to get the stealership to give it to you but if you don't have the original car then I think you're screwed.

It's the BCM code.

Body Control Module (BCM) Programming/RPO Configuration

ECM/PIM/BCM Security Link

If the engine control module (ECM), powertrain interface module (PIM) and/or the body control module (BCM) are replaced, the new modules must be security linked to each other. If the procedure is not performed, the engine will not crank or run. If the BCM has been replaced then replace and program all of the key fob transmitters for each of the vehicle's keys. The replacement BCM comes with a new security number replacing the number on the vehicle's security card.

Linking the BCM to the PIM

With the Tech 2, perform the following procedures:
•Replace the key fob transmitter for each of the vehicle's keys.
•Connect the Tech 2 to the data link connector (DLC) and select: Diagnostic / Pontiac GTO/ Body / Body Control Module / Special Functions / Program Key Fobs, and follow the screen instructions to program the key fob transmitters. Refer to Transmitter Programming Transmitter Programming for further information.
•When prompted, enter the security code located on the new BCM and follow the Tech 2 instructions. If a valid code is entered, the new BCM and key fobs will now be linked to each other. The key fobs will be write protected by the BCM and can never be link to another BCM.
•After successfully programming the new key fobs, backup to Special Functions and select Link BCM to PIM and enter the new BCM security number. This will link the new BCM to the PIM and the security information in the PIM will change.
Therefore, the PIM and the ECM will have to be linked. Perform a Vehicle Theft Deterrent relearn through SPS Programming. This will link the PIM to the ECM.
Linking the PIM to the BCM

Important: If a new Powertrain Interface Module has been installed in the Vehicle, it must be security linked to the Body Control Module and the Engine Control Module. It is recommended that you link the PIM to the BCM before linking to the ECM. For information on linking the PIM to the ECM refer to Engine Control Module Programming and Setup .


Connect the Tech 2 to the data link connector (DLC) and select: Diagnostic / Pontiac GTO/ Body / Powertrain Interface Module / Special Functions / Link BCM to PIM, and follow the screen instructions.

PIM Reset Procedure

The PIM reset procedure is only required when moving a known good PIM from one vehicle to another for the purpose of diagnosing the vehicle.

When a PIM has been installed into a vehicle, it is security linked to the BCM and the ECM. Once this linking has been performed, the PIM cannot be installed in any other vehicle unless the security linking between the BCM and the ECM has been reset. To reset the PIM refer to Service Programming System (SPS) .

PIM Configuration

This procedure will configure the PIM for either an automatic or manual transmission.
•Connect the Tech 2 to the data link connector (DLC) and select: Diagnostic / Pontiac GTO/ Body / Powertrain Interface Module / Special Functions / PIM Configuration, and follow the screen instructions.
•Select the transmission type and press the soft key.

Linking the BCM to the PIM without Tech 2

Without the Tech 2, perform the following procedure:
•Replace the key fob transmitter for each of the vehicle's keys.
Program the key fob transmitter. Refer to Transmitter Programming Transmitter Programming in Keyless Entry. •Turn ignition ON with a valid key.
•Leave the ignition in the ON position for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes the car horn will chirp once.
•Turn the ignition OFF within 5 minutes after the horn chirp and ON again within 5 seconds. If the timing expires for this step, the sequence will be cancelled.
•Leave the key in the ON position for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes the car horn will chirp twice.
•Turn the ignition OFF within 5 minutes after the horn chirps and ON again within 5 seconds.
•Leave the key in the ON position for 10 minutes, after 10 minutes the car horn will chirp three times. During the three horn chirps the BCM and PIM are being linked.
•Turn the ignition OFF, and wait 5 seconds.
•Turn the ignition ON and leave the ignition in the ON position for 10 minutes.
•Turn the ignition OFF, and wait 5 seconds.
•Turn the ignition ON and leave the ignition in the ON position for 10 minutes.
•Turn the ignition OFF, and wait 5 seconds.
•Turn the ignition ON and leave the ignition in the ON position for 10 minutes.
•The ECM is now ready to relearn the password from the PIM on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK.
•Turn the ignition ON. Linking is now completed.
•Turn the ignition to crank and run engine at idle speed, to confirm the linking procedure has been successful.

Jontall. Thanks, I've seen that exerp all over the web, but nowhere does it tell you how to "Perform a Vehicle Theft Deterrent relearn through SPS Programming." It dooesnt tell how to SPS at all. Thats mah problem, and as was mentioned, these are 3 different parts from 3 different cars. Not the standard plug n play scenario.
Getting the codes from a stealership is probably going to be tough...

I may need the tool as well. I may have accidentally killed my BCM by momentarily hooking up my battery backwards. :::ugh:::

I don't have extras any and haven't sold any yet. Something I'll focus more on since more people seem to be requesting the cloner.

The tool just went out to a member, but will let you know when it is available.

I would buy one of these as well.

I think I am having BCM issues

If the local dealer can't look up my PIM/IMMO code I'll have to borrow this. I put a new ECM in the car and would like to get rid of the security warning from VATS being disabled.

Is it possible the BCM can cause the alternator to fry?

I'm at wit's end and this would be my last resort

I'm still loaning out the cloner to members. Just send a PM if you need it and I'll let you know if it's available.
