Q: Smart Entrance Control Module needs replacing

asked by on February 11, 2016

I believe my Smart Entrance Control Module needs to be replaced. I am having issues with my interior dome light, defrost light, auto locks, and keyless entry not working.

The SECM may be ok. It may have a power issue due to a blown fuse or relay. The SECM is an expensive part and may require factory level programming. I suggest having a qualified technician fully inspect your vehicle’s electrical system before condemning the SECM.
