    Where is it? can you share? I think I'm having the fretting corrosion problem with my 2008 Escalade ESV so I want to try as many things as I can before going to the dealer.

    Hello David2008ESV,

    The BCM is located under the instrument panel on the left side. Please let me know if you have other questions or concerns!

    Re: BCM location 08 Escalade

    Thanks Laura! Do I just remove it to see if it is experiencing the corrosion problem?

    We just bought a 2008 Escalade ESV on the 27th of April with just about 60,000 miles.

    We've been driving it without issue, since we purchased the vehicle. Absolutely no signs of anything being suspect.

    Last night, my wife, two year old son and I left the restaurant where we had dinner and the problems began.

    I hit the remote to open the rear gate so I could place the to go box from the restaurant, closed it by hitting the button. All good so far. Then I unlocked the doors with my remote. I got in the Escalade, interior lights came on and then I placed the key in the ignition, turned it to the first position, all dash lights came on, turn to start and everything went BLACK - interior lights went OUT, no clicking from the ignition - nothing.

    It was like it had a dead battery.

    I tried to jump it, got the interior lights on - so I thought we were good to go, tried to start and the same thing - everything went BLACK - no lights whatsoever.

    Now I can't even get it to do a darn thing. Finally had to have it towed home and now it sits in my driveway.

    I've read a lot of posts here and other sites, it sure seems there are a lot of TSBs on this model year regarding electrical.

    Did I just buy a lemon? That's sure how I feel right about now...we've only put maybe 500 miles on this thing so far and it is now just a cold piece of steel decoration in my driveway.

    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

    Re: BCM location 08 Escalade

    I have a 2008 Escalade base model. I have a new Body Control Module to install. I looked under the driver side and do not see anything that remotely looks like the BCM I have. The part # is 25835966 is this the right part? if so where exactly is the BCM? Are their panel that need to be removed to expose it?
    thanks
    Joe

    David2008ESV I too place my bet on battery cables themself. I had severe corrosion on my negative & replace it with a simple one from Autozone. Not even 2 months later my trucks went completely dead while driving..no battery power whatsoever. I touch the positive and everything sprung to life. Seems as if the crimp in the OEM positive cable was weak. I hacked it off and crimped a new one on. 5 mo. & not single issue so far
