    Hi,
    Anyone know if you can use a BCM (body control module) to control and add features like auto down on drivers electric window etc, if so what level BCM has the electric windows feature low, mid or high?

    I don't think it will work, the VRs are way to modern than a VL.

    anything is possible it just depends how much trouble you are prepared to go to with the wiring

    well, the car currently has no dash, and the toyota motor is just waiting for the wires to be hooked up to fire her into life....so I guess i qualify for the 'anything is possible it just depends how much trouble you are prepared to go to with the wiring' catagory

    What other features are you looking to add to the VL ?

    You need at least a Mid level BCM to gain power windows (I've just fitted one to my VY for the windows).

    The power window auto down feature could be achieved by using a stand alone power window module from someting like a VP.

    If you go for the BCM option you'll be tied to a Holden dealer (or someone else) with a programming tool (Tech2 etc) whenever you want to set it all up or make any changes.

    why would you need to prgram the BCM? i'm not planning on using the engine imobilser, or central, just the windows, interior light delay, headlight auto off/on radio power off when door open sort of gear.
    thats why i started the thread, too see if anyone else had played with this idea, i have considered the vp windows module just thought it would be nicer to get the extra stuff
