Hello all! I'm looking for some help. I have a 2005 base model Aztek that I have owned for the past 4 years and my parents bought new. It has been a great car for my kids, with the exception of replacing multiple front wheel bearings, it has been a solid car. Until recently that is. My daughter was stranded the other night, and I found that the BCM fuse under the hood had blown. This happened once before about 6 months ago. I replaced it again and thought nothing of it. I at least showed her where it was and how to change it to be safe. Luckily I did because it has blown 3 times in the last 2 days.

I have read many forums and posts regarding bad BCMs on the cars. Is this problem a cause of the BCM going bad, or should I be looking elsewhere? Should I just try swapping out the 10 amp fuse for a 15 amp and see what happens? Or do I just pick up a used one at the junkyard tomorrow? And if a used one is installed, does it still have to be programmed by the dealer or is it possible to get lucky if I find one that has the same options as mine? I did try searching for this info, but was not able to totally determine what needs to be done or if this is even the cause of my problem. I greatly appreciate any help that can be offered! Thanks for reading.
