I do not think any are involved, but it wouldn't hurt to reseat all of the fuses and relays in the Underhood Fuse Block as well.

The auto-locking behavior when you are manually unlocking the door suggests a hardware failure in the BCM, rather than a simple loose connection.
I just tried it again (locking / unlocking doors) and it still hasn't worked. I tried it while moving and while at a stop. I found a couple BCM's on Ebay, it seems they are about $75 OBO for the part.

Here is what I am finding:

Body Cont (BCM) BCM/ECU BCM ECU,25848392: eBay Motors (item 290458068643 end time Aug-25-10 10:30:55 PDT)

Body Cont (BCM) BCM/ECU BCM ECU,15906911: eBay Motors (item 290455880545 end time Aug-18-10 12:13:04 PDT)

This weekend I'll dig into the passenger side and see what I find out. Hopefully they are both the same part (they look the same to me!!)

TY all again for the help.

Heyyyyyyyy everyone,

It has been a bit, but I pulled up the carpet and checked the BCM. Fuse #26 looked okay and I did reseat it. The door locks still did not work. So I will just replace the unit. Looks pretty easy to swap, and the part isn't too expensive and is of the same design on other GM cars so that is a plus.

I'll get a DIY up with photos when I do the swap.

Thanks again for the great help all.

John

Thanks man, I got the part in last night. It looks like only about 5 or 6 screws, so this should be a pretty straight forward DIY.

I'll start a separate thread with pics and what not later.

Resurrecting a dead thread. I had this problem, and found this thread. Pulled #26 , and it was fine. Put it back in, and viola! Locks work again. Not real happy with the Velcro securing system for the BCM cover. Has anyone found a more robust solution?

To me that would be a solution in search of a problem. Mine has never shifted so I don't see any reason to change it.

The Velcro attachment on the left side came loose from the panel when I was removing it. Thinking about just getting a self-tapping screw, and replacing the Velcro with that. Using 3M double sided tape on the left side at the moment. I know I can't see it with the carpet in place, but it tasks me. LOL

I think that if the Velcro on mine came loose I would re-install Velcro.

That's certainly an option.

Hey @Koobie, if you are still active in this forum, did the new BCM solve your problem?

I didn't know this until 6 months after having purchased my car...

You have to click twice to open the passenger door with the FOB.

Oh. Well Time flies...

When I press once the lights turn on but nothing unlocks.
When I press the second time the passenger door unlocks.

There is something wrong with the power from the BCM to the drivers side unlock actuator. (I think...)

More recent models (like my '13 Equinox) are programmable. I have it set to unlock everything with the first click.
