So they totaled it, gave you it's bluebook value and then let you buy it back from them for only $250??

Yes. The worksheet from the dealer states that they "FOUND ECM/PCM, BCM, SDM, AND IPC SHORTED"

So, THEORETICALLY, I should be able to replace the PCM and BCM with one from the junkyard and have it run? Obviously, I'll get to replacing the SDM and the instrument panel cluster too, but just to get it to run and check for any other problems I should be able to do this, correct?

Do any of you think I will have to get the dealer to "flash" or do whatever they do to the computer to get it to work with my car?

thanks

Ok so I have started searching the forum and have come up with some information that may be outdated or for the wrong year so I am asking 3 questions:

1.) Can a salvaged PCM and BCM be coded to my car by a GM tech II scan tool at the dealer?

If I go to the junkyard, pull those parts, can I be reasonably assured that assuming the parts are fine that they will work?

2.) Is there a rear BCM or a secondary BCM in these cars?

3.) Am I overlooking anything? It seems like a relatively straightforward problem to solve, and it is seeming too easy...

Thoughts, comments, suggestions and personal opinions are welcomed and will be considered
