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.

What’s the estimated turnaround time on these? Thanks 

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?

lol thanks phil, being i am in canada it would mean i would not be able to use my truck for a week

Drop us a line from our website we may be able to work something out to help you with that :)

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

To pgamboa sorry it's a little off topic but in your video what or where did you get the mirrors on your truck? Thanks and sorry for being off topic.
Tested this out. Trying to make hybrid if these and the factory DL3s and adding switchback LEDs to the front lens.

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.

      2004 SUBURBAN Z71
       
      I need some help.
       
      My suburban sometimes goes dead.  It will go dead every day for a week, and then not again for a month.  Right now, its doing it again.
       
      I have:
      Replaced the battery (twice) on a new battery < 1 week old.
      Had the alternator tested 3 times.
      Replaced a questionable looking harness connection on the alternator with a soldered in connector properly heat shrunk.
      Replaced the Instrument cluster about 6 months ago with a rebuild due to bad steppers. (not because of battery drain) but I mention it because its popped up before.
      Performed numerous parasitic draw tests and found a possible issue:
       
      Here's what I have found so far.  My natural battery off state is 0.03A or 30mA.   I have confirmed this with a matching truck I have where it has an off state draw of 22mA.  They're within reason to each other so I consider that the normal state for my vehicle.
       
      I have caught what I feel to be the issue twice, where I have a draw of 0.22A or 220mA almost a 1/4 amp and solid.  It doesn't happen every time though.  I only luckily found this twice while testing.  The only way I can get the draw to disappear when it comes up by itself is to pull TBC BATT.  And I only know its happening because I have a meter in line with the battery while testing.
       
      I can simulate this same draw by doing the following:
       
      1: Wait for the natural off state to settle in around 0.03A.  This takes about a minute, first it starts off at 2.8A, then drops to 1.8, and so on as features are put to sleep after connecting the battery.
      2: Pull the LBEC 1 Fuse.  This makes the battery draw jump from the settled state of 30mA up to 190mA.
      3: Reinsert LBEC 1 Fuse.  This then jumps the battery draw all the way up to 220mA, which I consider to be the actual problem.  The thing is it never drops back down.  It just sits there indefinitely.
      4: (to solve the issue) If I pull TBC BATT that instantly drops the draw back to the normal off state current, and when I reinsert TBC BATT the draw doesn't come back until I repeat the process above.
       
      Notes:
      A: when this happens, pulling any fuses in the cabin fuse panel does not drop the current.
      B: There is an audible click from a relay or something INSIDE the BCM under the dash.  My other truck does this too, but I'm not sure what's on the aft side of that connection.
       
      I checked out some of the free wiring diagrams at autozone.  Unfortunately they're not organized too well and I'm getting lost with them, that and once the diagram enters the BCM I'm not sure whats going on with the circuits after that.
       
      Anyone here have some insight to what to do?  Like I said before, I have another identical truck (just not Z71) I can swap parts and pieces with to narrow it down.  I will mention that on the other truck, if I do the steps above I get the same result BUT it eventually does settle down to 0.02A by itself where the Z71 does not.  It just draws that 1/4 amp all day long (usually all night long).
       
      Here's a video of my test:

      Here are the two offending circuits in the underhood fuse panel:

      My 2015 Silverado 1500 4x4 crew cab has about 110000 miles on it. It just started having an issue that I cannot seem to fix. The engine stays running when I turn the key to the off position and remove it. The accessories turn off normally and the RAP seems to be working. Meaning the radio and things turn off when I open the door....this truck is all stuck with the exception of a light bar. I’ve already pulled the light bar fuse at the battery hookup to see if that had anything to do with it and it made no change. Any ideas? Thanks

      I hate to start a new topic but looks like I had to, 
       
      So I'm doing an escalade interior swap on my 2008 chevrolet silverado 1500, I got a full donar vehicle, what I will do is pull the whole dash, counsel, seats, and all the interior wiring, but use my silverados bcm, one issue that I am facing is how will I add the vci numbers for the seats and pretty much the whole dash to work with my 2008 silverados bcm since it never came with all those features, 
       
      Gm in Canada here is to stubborn to create vci numbers and they simply won't do it, 
      Is there any advice I could have? 
      Can gm program the bcm without the truck being at the dealer?

      I noticed that there have been several posts a on the Hyperflash problems with LED tail lights.  I've got a 2015 that I updated to Axial tail lights and they worked great for about 2 years.  Recently the passenger has been hyper-flashing about 90% of the time.  The light works fine, so it's not really out.  I put the stock lights back in and they are fine.  Any thoughts on how to repair the light and/or figure out what resistor needs to be replaced? 
       
      Thanks in advance for input and I'd appreciate any advice.

      I am currently sitting in front of boost autos High beam to spot mirror mod for the 2019+ HD trucks. This kit taps into the BCM using a relay and a diode to achieve the spot lights on while in drive. I'll attach a install link that shows the wire taps in the BCM. Although this kit sounds nice, I don't want my Task lights (spot lights) on whenever my high beams are on, but rather have the option to use the stock dash button to achieve my desired lighting while in drive. From what I've broke down I believe this to be a ground activated relay and could be done differently then tapping into the high beams. The kits relay is wired as follows: 30- red to fuse with a jumper to 30, 86-black, 85- red jumper from 30, 87- dual outputs with diode. Could anyone simplify this for me to where I can either just always have use of my mirror lights in drive or park, or what I need to wire/jump etc to achieve this? I feel like I'm over thinking this and there should be a simple answer that tricks the truck's mirror lights to believe they are still in park. Maybe a ground wire just tapped in or something???
