Re: 05 chevy truck bcm programming?
Posted to Technical Discussion Forum on 8/29/2012

Here's how you find out whether a GM module needs to be programmed and how to do it:


In GM Service Information ($20/three days), build the vehicle, and then use the search box at the top to search for the term Control Module References.

The Control Module References chart has four columns for each module on the vehicle.

The first column contains a link to a table which shows all of the available scan tool PIDS for that module.

The second column contains a link to schematics related to that module.

The third column contains a link to R&R instructions for that module.

The fourth column contains a link to programming and setup instructions for that module.

This chart is also in Mitchell On-Demand. Build the vehicle in MOD, and then search for the term Control Module Programming using the search box at the top of the right column.

I don't have access to Alldata nor any other third-party service information provider, but I would think that you'd search in a similar manner...
