Vs Statesman
Hi Folks
apologies if this has been discussed i am just new to this forum, but i have a vs v8 statesman, and i am having problems with the engine cutting out when ever it feels like it whist driving, it restarts again after i stop the car, I took to my mechanics and he thinks the BCM is faulty but wasn't any more helpful, i have a BCM with key from a V6 statesman donor car we have.
My v8 statesman BCM is 379 hi and the v6 statesman BCM is 149 hi.
So my question is are these interchangeable whats the difference??
Can i swap them?

BCM from VS and VR are not interchangeable.

On my bcm list I have here
379 high = VR statesman, Calais
149 high = VS statesman, Calais, Berlina

It's an old list I have. Not sure how good it is. I have always matched bcm numbers when changing to eliminate any risks.

Sounds more like a faulty Hall Effect Sensor (HES) in the distributor. Check the posts over the last week or so. There have been a number of members that have experienced similar problems.
