I tested the wires from the BCM/SAM by adding a power and ground going to the RF window, window works, thus removing the possibility of a broken wire. The BCM/SAM scan data shows when I open and close the window from the master or passenger switch. Either way the window doesn't move. I did test the fuses but not the ground just yet. I don't suspect a problem since everything else works including the LF window. I will test the grounds soon. 

My question is does the BCM need to be programmed if replaced?

Thanks Fred

Needs scn coding if new. Used needs cloning.

Thank you, can the Autel elite scanner do this? Or factory is the only way to go?
