MINI Body Control Module (BCM) failure explained
Body Control Module (BCM) failure is a common problem in MINI vehicles, especially between 2000 and 2007. The BCM module is a unit that controls all the vehicle's lights, central locking, windows, radio, and FAN.
The BCM is an electronic component that controls electrical elements. It receives signals from sensors in your MINI, such as central locking, windows, radio, and FAN.
Typically your MINI BCM will fail due to age and moisture.
Symptoms of failed MINI BCM units include:
- Headlights stay on
Windows do not move up or down
- Central locking is not working
- AC is off
- Radio has no power
Most electronic systems are off
The BCM controls the central locking. You cannot fit a used part without coding it to your vehicle. If you do, the central locking won't work.
Once a repaired or replaced BCM from the ECU Pro is installed into the vehicle no additional programming is required. The power to all modules will be restored and the central locking will work.

100% plug and play - No other programming is required once repaired.
1-2 day turnaround - Most of our repairs are done within 1 day, excluding shipping.
