Does your vehicle have power on the purple wire at the starter? If you have power on the purple wire during cranking you likely have a faulty starter. If you have no communication with the body control module (BCM), the most likely cause is a faulty BCM. These vehicles are known for having bad BCMs. Unfortunately the BCM will need to be setup with a factory scan tool. If you’d like, a certified YourMechanic technician can come to your home or place of business to help you perform a Car is not starting Inspection and diagnose this issue.
