Red face It's software/firmware

You're missing the software. They have to flash the BCM and it has to be with one from a car equipped exactly like yours plus a 201A package. So you would have to have them find one BY VIN NUMBER! And, they WON'T. I unwound an entire car purchase because of this issue. The dealer took about a 3000 dollar hit in order to satisfy me, and I'd have let it go but they promised, then when it came down to it, they just would rather lose money than do the procedure.

Good luck, but I am willing to bet a dollar to a donut it isn't going to happen.
