Hello there everyone! Thought I would give this forum a shot - as i have already paid for two separate call out Auto Electricians and the bill is just.. incredible. I have also regularly used this forum in the past for information i may have needed. Blimmen great community guys! Basically my v6 3.8l 2000 VT cranks a few times when trying to start, and won't start. It was left sitting around for 4-5 months, and it hasn't been able to start since. The fuel pump primes, We have replaced the BCM and programmed a new key, this allowed us to be able to unlock the doors and wind the windows up, it also gave us the red flashing light above "mode" When you unimmobilize the car with the key, put the key in the ignition, and try to start the car, one of three things happens: 1) absolutely nothing 2) will start to turn over, ch ch ch then nothing, but sounded like it was so close 3) will slowly go chh.. ch... like a dead battery (have to keep turning key off ignition fully, then all the way back to reds to attempt to start) the battery is fully charged, have tried to smack the starter motor. The auto sparkys told us it was the BCM and key. After what seemed like vigorous testing. In the whole 15 mins they looked over it before racking out the $150 bill!
