WHAT IS A BODY CONTROL MODULE?

In modern days, people always look for safety and comfort in their car, which eventually leads to the requirement for a modern vehicle electrical system architecture.

The body control module is a comprehensive system or electronic control unit which functions for controlling and managing numerous electronic accessories in a vehicle’s body.

The main structural component of the system in charge of the controlling portion is made up of the connectors and microcontrollers built into a BCM. Through input devices, operating data is sent to the control module. These could contain variable reactors, sensors, and performance indicators for vehicles.

After the module has processed the data, integrated output devices, such as relays and solenoids, produce a response signal. The BCM controls how well different electronics systems are working through the system of output devices. The body control module design diagram demonstrates a unique circuit that serves as a gateway for integrating and connecting smaller circuits.

WHAT IS THE FUNCTION OF BODY CONTROL MODULE?

Have you wondered, What actually a body control module actually does in a car ? An automotive body control module has a large number of functions. CAN (Controller Area Network), LIN (Local Interconnect Network), or Ethernet is used to communicate with modules and systems, and output devices are managed to depend on data from input devices. 

A BCM can do several control-related tasks at once. Finding problems with how electrical system components perform is one of this module’s main goals. The following are aspects of integral body control modules:

  • Ensuring the control, testing, and safety of essential electrical loads, such as lights, immobilizers, air conditioners, locking mechanisms, and windshield wipers
  • Keeping in touch via the vehicle bus system with integrated control modules (CAN, LIN, or Ethernet)
  • Becoming an integration gateway at work
  • Giving sophisticated data management a user-friendly interface.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A BODY CONTROL MODULE GOES BAD?

When it comes to BCM in automotive, it can be challenging, and programming a BCM is a complex process. Buying a new body control module can cost you a hack of money. So, before it’s too late lets us know the symptoms of bad or failing BCM (body control module):

  • Because BCM communicates with other components, so sometimes when you start it will be no start. In many cases, it will alert you by giving a warning light
  • When the battery drains so fast because some of the components still run after the key is turned off.
  • The dashboard instrumentation cluster’s error and warning lights will turn on if the BCM isn’t functioning properly. If the BCM cannot properly read the sensors, these lights may flicker on and off. As the BCM interacts with other vehicle control modules, your vehicle’s performance may also be impacted.
  • Errors on Security function which include issues in body control failure.
