So I had a problem the other day.
The other day my wife got up at the same time I did and was leaving for her moms house 4hrs away. She was going to take the truck and I was going to drive the car while she was gone. I have a remote starter on my 2001 stratus. We only have one fob and it is on my wife's keys. I had her start the car before she left. I drive to work and go to shut off the car. It won't shut off. The remote start won't turn off and the wife has the key fob and is on her way out of town. We all know how easy it is to disconnect the battery on the car. So I decide to pull the the fuel pump relay and the car stalls. Then the remote starter starts to try to start the car again so I pull the starter relay.
I went in to work and came out at lunch. Replace relays and it is still trying to start, remove relays again. I open up the inside fuse panel and it smell like electronics getting hot so I know the power is still on. I go back to work and come out after work. replace relays it doesn't try to start. Dead battery, get a jump. car starts and I can shut it off, but the instrument panel is not working. Car is now in safe mode. Drive home 2.1 miles. Disconnect the battery for awhile and reconnect still in safe mode.
So I buy a BCM off ebay. I will say that removing and installing was easy. Car is out of safe mode and the I/C is working. Only problem I have now is the odometer is now a lot higher than mine. I have to find some one to reset it or just live with it.
