    2012 Kia Optima BCM issues.

That is when I found the problem. BCM...

    2012 Kia Optima BCM issues.

    Thanks Mobile Dan. Took back to shop and double checked. I am embarrassed to say as a 20+ year Master Tech I could not properly probe the fuses.

    P0410 code-- Mercedes C230 1997 --162K miles

    Where are you located? I do emissions testing in Georgia. A pending code or stored code without a check engine light does not cause a car to fail. One monitor incomplete also passes.

    2012 Kia Optima BCM issues.

    Not 100% All fuses and grounds check good. Scan tool will not communicate w/ BCM. According to fellow tech at work BCM's have been a known issue. Due to recent surgery have not been able to diag as much as I would like. If you have any suggestions I am more than willing to listen.

    2012 Kia Optima BCM issues.

    Warning lights on dash inop, shift interlock inop. Have new BCM does it need to be programmed. If so, can it be done with an Autel Elite or Snap on Veros? Or is it necessary to take it to the dealer.

    02 Altima intermittent no throttle response.

    To replace the cat which is part of the exhaust manifold you have to remove the alternator. In haste I failed to properly tighten the B+.

    02 Altima intermittent no throttle response.

    Fixed- checked identifix at work found 5 hits all related to alternator, tested and found excessive ac ripple. Alternator was one year old, was checking part number and found that I had not fully tightened the B+ when I replaced the cat 2 weeks ago. Thanks for the help.
