Happened to me too actually. Had a Chevy that did that kind of thing.
My BCM (body control module), an essential computer part inside the car, died.
Symptoms of its decay were my thief protection activating intermittently.
Including while turning onto a busy road, with a passenger, killed engine, locked wheel, stopping me in the middle of the road.
I’m not normally one for swearing.
Probably the loudest “OH SHIT” i have ever said on that day.
Fun times. $400ish for that part.
@wholesomedonut @hund aren’t Cara great fun! 🤦♂️
