I recently bought a new BCM for a 2009 Infiniti FX50S. On installing new BCM, there was total blackout; no more ignition light. How can I programme the new BCM to work with my car?

  • What is the year/make/model/option package of the car? There is no way to answer this question without background on the vehicle itself. Feb 1 '16 at 18:04
  • Also, expand acronyms in the title and when they are first used - what is a BCM?

Initializing a BCM for your vehicle requires a special Nissan dealership tool.

This is a theft prevention measure in order to thwart criminals from plugging in a BCM and stealing the vehicle.

The BCM contains information related to digital key security related to the key fob.

The BCM has a serial number that would be required to be entered into the initialization device which then issues a PIN you put into a software application that will initialize the BCM for the first time. Following initialization and installation a new fob would need to be associated with the device.

You will need to goto an Infiniti or Nissan dealership or a shop that has the appropriate tools to perform this task.
