I got this car a week ago and it seems pretty darned solid - except for some glitches. After much searching, I have been unable to confirm why my interior lights won't turn off. While investigating why none of my interior lights would come on, I found the relay under the back seat missing. That explains the relay in the console storage. So I plugged it back in and the lights all came on. Unfortunately they won't turn off. The headliner had been replaced before I got the car due to the sunroof leaking so I pulled the upper "console" out to check for pinched wires, etc. Nothing was out of place. So at this point it appears from some sources that the BCM could be the culprit? I don't want to take it to a dealer just to get charged $145/hr to look at it on a scanner. I understand I will need to do this after I change the crank sensors too. That's another $145, and programming my new key fob will also be $145 for an hour of labor according to the dealer.
This is BS.
I've had five of the same gen LeSabres (2000-2002) and two late 90s Bonnevilles and not one ever had programming issues like this. I like this car but I'm not happy at the moment. Tech 2 scanners are very expensive, even used. I don't understand why they were made this way.
