first thing first are you sure that your BCM box is bad what symptoms are you experiencing I had a similar problem just the other day I thought my BCM box was going bad my brake lights would come on and stay on and my cruise control would also not work do to my brake lights staying on I went on line to check this problem out and found out that this was an easy fix that my box might not be bad at all, if your having similar problems try this first go to your local parts store and buy you a tube of dielectric silicone compound unhook your ground cable on your battery go to your BCM box and remove the two big grey plugs once you have removed them open the tube of grease and put a finger full on your finger and rub it inside where the plugs go and spread it evenally as possible once done rehook your grey plugs and then replace your cover and then you can rehook your ground cable this is what i done to my car and it fixed my problem. hope this helps... Here also is the bulletin i went to just type in technical bulletin #08-05-009c and it will explain more about it.

Check this procedure about how to Replace Brake Pads....

Parts:
1. Brake Pad Set

Tools:
1. C-Clamp
2. Flat Head Screwdriver
3. Jack Stand Set
4. 3/8 in. Drive Ratchet
5. Combination Wrench Set
6. Tire Iron
7. Socket Set
8. 1/4 in. Drive Torque Wrench
9. Dial Indicator

Supplies:
1. Brake Cleaner
2. Brake Lubricant

Steps:
Step 1 Secure your vehicle on a level surface, making sure your car will not roll or lean too much when jacked up.
o Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.

Step 2 Remove the cap from the brake master cylinder. Using a turkey baster, remove a quarter of the brake fluid from the master cylinder. Lift up the front of your vehicle using a floor jack.
o Tip: Using an aftermarket floor jack, instead of the original equipment (OE) jack, can make the job easier and safer. Verify the condition of the floor jack before use.

Step 3 Secure the vehicle with jack stands on both sides for safety before starting any work. The pinch welds and the frame are the two best locations. Do not rely on the jack to hold the vehicle up while working.
o Tip: Try to find a flat, level, and strong surface to put the jack stands.

Step 4 Remove the front wheels by removing the lugs nuts that are holding them on. To do this you will need to find the correct size socket and large ratchet or tire iron and turn them counter clockwise. If your vehicle is equipped with hub caps (plastic covers over the wheels), these will need to be removed to access the lug nuts.
o Tip: It is a good idea to try and break the lug nuts free before you jack the wheels off the ground. This way they you will not spin the front wheels or put stress on the transaxle.
o Tip: Lug nuts fasten the wheel to the hub and may be on very tight. To gain more leverage, use a breaker bar to loosen the nuts.

Step 5 Inspect the brake rotors for scoring, grooves, cracks and discoloration.

Step 6 Remove the brake caliper mounting bolts.

Step 7 Slide the brake caliper off of the brake rotor.
o Tip: If the brake rotors are worn and there is a big lip preventing the brake caliper from sliding off easily, gently pry one pad back into the brake caliper to clear the lip and make removal easier.

Step 8 Support the brake caliper up and away from the working area. Make sure you do not kink or pinch any brake lines. Do not disconnect the brake line.
o Tip: Use a bungee cord to secure the brake caliper out of the way and hang it on the suspension spring.

Step 9 Remove the brake pads from brake caliper.

Step 10 Compress caliper piston using a C-clamp.

Step 11 Install the new brake pads in the brake caliper.

Step 12 Reinstall the brake caliper.

Step 13 Torque the brake caliper mounting bolts to manufacturer’s specifications. Repeat for other side.

Step 14 Install wheels and torque to manufacturer’s specifications.

Step 15 Refill the brake fluid in the brake master cylinder and reinstall the cap.

Step 16 Road test vehicle, break in new pads.
o Tip: To break in pads and rotors refer to manufacturers recommendations. Some companies have different procedures for pad and rotor break in.


Hope this help (remember rated this help), good luck.

Might be in that mode or the vent cable might be broken in dash that controls direction of air flow.

Wiring, schematic, electrical diagrams, fuse diag, error codes, torque settings etc are basic contents of these online books they have here on this website www.reliable-store.com I have attached. Must check it out

code p 0496 refers to evaporative emission (EVAP) system---high purge flow===causes ---wiring --EVAP valve---mechanical fault

code p 0171system too lean bank 1===causes --intake / exhaust leak---AIr system---MAF/VAF sensor--fuel pressure too low/---pump--injectors ---Heated oxygen sensor (HO2S)

with the first code it could be a faulty vent valve or solenoid
with the second code , it is probably a faulty HO2S unit ( the one in the exhaust manifold before the cat converter)

check connections of bulb might be need sanded

2006 Chevrolet... | Answered on Mar 03, 2018


code p 0601refers to engine control module (ECM)--memory check--sum error=== causes --ECM
code p 0420 refers to cat converter system bank 1--efficiency below threshold===causes cat converter --wiring --- heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) in exhaust manifold before cat converter
At this point get a known good ECM unit and substitute it for the old one as all indications are a problem ECM unit

Please need more details. When that started, did you do anything to your Chevy before?

2006 Chevrolet... | Answered on Jan 22, 2018


Is the belt tight enough or is it good?. That could be the first cause. Second, check that big cable from the battery, also the ignition cable.

Sounds like your battery is dead. Most batteries last about two to three years. I suspect maybe yours has a couple of dead cells. You will need a hydrometer a device we use to test each cell. When you pick one up at the parts store pry open the caps off of the top of the battery. Next squeeze and hold the bulb on the hydrometer and stick the meter into each opening in the battery and release and make a notation of where the little ball in the meter is located. This will tell you that you have one or more cells dead and the battery will need replacing. Good Luck.

Building a reliable fuse box isn't rocket science so it is surprising so many manufacturers fail in this simple but essential bit of equipment.
Because these days the fuse box is integral to the wiring harness instead of a plug-in unit, replacing one of these overpriced overcomplicated overengineered nightmares is a fairly major undertaking.
The conventional solution is to employ an auto electrician to bypass the defective sections. Sometimes this is easy and cheap and sometimes a circuit diagram is needed and rather more time.

The trouble begins as a 2006 model probably uses a great deal of digital electronics and it is difficult to know where they begin and normal systems end and when a problem does occur it is difficult to know whether the problem is with normal electricity or digital - even the wipers...

As the wipers won't switch off it doesn't seem like the usual fusebox fault but I would need to study the circuit to look for clues. If necessary it should be possible to fit a temporary kill switch to the wipers fairly easily and quickly.

120 to the dealer to just take a look and give an opinion seems like a rip-off.

Try fuel injector cleaner. 2 bottles in full tank or one in half tank. Walmart black bottle.
