Yup, the BCM controls the things that are still working. The ECM controls the things that aren't. It may just need to be reset. One would think there is some sort of protection circuit in there.

Let the dealer know what happened.. it'll save you diagnostic time, and give them a better idea of what's wrong.

How much damage - Page 3 - Last Post -- posted image.Yet another dealer raping!!! grrrrr That fuse probably cost $2 tops I accidently shorted out the main battery fuse once did almost the same thing... but come to find out it was just a blown 50 amp fuse... Try to remember LOOK EVERYWHERE for factory harnesses! and if anything like that happens again newer vehicles are FUSED UP THE WAZOO EVERYTHING HAS A FUSE! so make sure to check every possible fuse and do a continuity test because sometime the fuse will blow where you can't see it! But glad to see your problem was fixed just not glad to see the $49 bill... but its better than $490! or even worse!

I don't know about you, but I like getting paid for my work.. so how about this?.. Fuse - $2. Cost to find out that fuse was blown and replace it $47. Or were you expecting the dealer mechanic to work for free?
