    I've never gone down your path but have herd changing bcm can require a tech 2 tool to reset for example. I'd suggest call a mobile auto elec explain in detail what you have done. It will cost a bit but peace of mind...

    your bcm supplies a security code to the ecu
    you will need to link the bcm to the ecu with a suitable scan tool
    from memory it asks for the new bcm security code which i hope you have
    then you will need new remotes for the new bcm again need the code
