    OK, half day today so I decided I was going to focus on this. I just re-read your post and look at Xemodex's site. the 2005 and up has some differences. It looks like mine should be BCM specific if I...

    Hmmm, interesting... I just got the check I've been waiting for to send things off to Xemodex... How did you determine that you didn't have power to fuse 15 of the CEM?

    Thanx Xheart, my search mojo was off the other day and somehow I missed this. The trick was to remove the strut bar and to clean off the sides of the assembly; mine was covered with road dirt and the...
