If you’ve emailed us about custom BCM work in the past it was likely, that at the time we just simply couldn’t take it. These units take an immense amount of time to build just a single unit for one vehicle and in the case of the truck platforms there could literally be thousands of build combinations we would have to account AND the big one… TEST FOR. Even with our recent efficiency upgrades full custom units still require a ton of dedicated time and it was hard to price them at a rate that was appropriate but still palpable. 

 

A few years ago we started compiling a list of the most common modifications we were getting requests for and we noticed a pattern; a lot of people were asking for variations of the same things. On top of that most customers seemed to be OK when asked if other certain features were included as well for a lower price point would they mind? The resounding answer was no they wouldn’t mind and when can we order it? 

 

It’s taken a few years to get there; but we are finally here now.

 

Announcing our new WAMS Spec BCM programming!

 

WAMS Spec BCM’s include our most requested modifications in one convenient, easy to order package and at a significantly lower price point; all with our new proprietary plug and play method that ELIMINATES the required trip to a dealer (or a high end scan tool) for a brake pedal position relearn after reinstallation!

 

We think every K2 owner will really enjoy this but those of you with lighter content trucks are really going to love it.

 

So enough with the build up,  here are the included features for this item:

 

·       Remote Start Enabled (Customer will still need a remote start key fob to utilize it)

·       Remote Start Cycle time extended to 20 minutes per cycle

·       Factory Alarm/Theft Deterrent Added to base model trucks

·       Factory Heated seat support added for trucks that don’t have it (wiring required obviously)

·       Turn signal “Hyper Flash” Deleted

·       Turn Signal Bulb Outage Detection Deleted

·       Fog lamps remain on with High Beam

·       Fog lamps no longer disable Intellibeam

·       Fog lamps remain on with Intellibeam/Auto High Beam enabled (if equipped)

·       Tap to pass (turn signal activation) bumped up from 3 to 4 flashes

·       Windows down from key fob added (For 2014-2015)

·       Windows down from key fob changed to Driver and Passenger front Windows only

·       Window down from key fob changed to allow “Vent” setting (release key fob to stop window motion prior to complete lowering)

·       Driver (and passenger on utilities) window UP from key fob (hold lock to raise). Express up windows are required to make this work and currently the K2 Pickups only have one on the driver’s side.

·       Trucks with a 98MPH speed limiter the limiter is raised slightly to allow a stock truck (a Denali for example) to run a full quarter mile without hitting the speed limiter before the end of the quarter.

 

Here you can see our final beta test on a complete base 2016 LS I apologize for the vertical video was just really happy to finally get done with the last combination for testing!

 

 

 

Please also check out Phil Gamboa’s (@pgamboa) phenomenally detailed review here:

 

 

 

 

 

 

So in closing all of you who have been asking when it would be ready… It’s here LOL

 

Also BIG Thank you to everyone who participated in early alpha and beta testing this with us. In addition to purchasing several vehicles for this (the latest our 2018 Denali) we tested this on over 20 trucks/SUV’s of different build combinations before we were comfortable enough to start offering this to the public.

Great question! :) So the plan is on these is once the order is placed to start building everything on our end so that when the unit arrives we can turn it as fast as possible so we are aiming for next day. If we had a later UPS pickup I'd say we could do same day. If someone is REALLY time crunch conscious and we plan it together same day may be possible but again all parties have to be on the same page.

Curious, once those changes are made are they permanent in regards to any “updates” the dealer might do if you take your truck in for service? Or would a dealer flash/update overwrite the WAMS changes and put everything back to original?

Can i put this on a 2012 GMC Acadia ?

No, the older acadias were not Global A however we do have a service for them the only thing is that BCM is not nearly as powerful so many things do not apply. If you want to get into specifics just drop us a line from our website and we can go over that.

pgamboa, I always wondered if  my 2016 is running with the key in it, can I use the RKE to exit the vehicle, while leaving it running with NO keys. As in, at the gas station in the winter. Without shutting it off and restarting. Thanks.

I haven't tested this in a long time BUT the anti lockout feature would likely not allow this LOL

here is a set of the DL3's mirror caps with high end LED strips that perform switchback function and are color matched oem paint for less than the cost of those mirrors. it achieves what you want done without needing to replace the entire mirror.
