I'm with you on that one. I took my car to Davis Chevrolet and they where charging 120 for the Steering Audio Control Switch and Onstar Module update.
They got the Onstar working from a red light to green and it works great but the Steering Controls didn't work and the told me they did the update and didn't know why it wasn't working, The guy at the Dealer " Maybe your car just wasn't compatible"

Please help, Just finished the install of switch and harness. Called my dealer here in S. Fla and he quoted me $235.00 for reprogramming the BCM. He said he checked with the service tech and said I need the RPO codes. Can you tell me the best steps to take next. 235 sound ridiculous ! Thanks

I paid $85 with tax and that seems excessive to me but the price has been all across the board from dealership to dealership. I know my place wanted more but when I told them a friend of mine went to his dealership and $85 is what he paid and if more than that then I'd go there, I was told "we don't want you to do that. We'll get I done of that" and I gave them the file to look up so they would know what to download from the GM Portal.

$85 after tax is a great price. The dealership has to pay GM $50 for the software alone. That means they charged your for about 15 minutes of labor.

It's in the bulletin in the first post:

Quote:
#PIC5320: Adding Radio Steering Wheel Control Switch (RPO NZL) - (Jan 26, 2010)

You may need to contact Techline Customer Support Center (TCSC) for a VCI number to recalibrate the BCM. Since this is not a warrantable repair, TCSC may charge a fee for this service.
Please follow this diagnostic or repair process thoroughly and complete each step. If the condition exhibited is resolved without completing every step, the remaining steps do not need to be performed.

Anyone know a dealership in S Florida that can program this for me. Or at least know someone at any dealer I can call. Not looking for a discount, just looking not to get the old "Dealer Rip Off" Thanks

Will these controls work with an aftermarket radio? I plan to replace mine soon and would hate to go this route and have it not work.

If you get an aftermarket module for your radio they should.

I had a side effect today... Put bezel back on plugged everything back in then connected the battery... It's saying I need to get y airbag serviced but when I connected the cords they clicked back in. I don't know what to do?

Any dealerships in the Houston area that might know how this is done? I'm hoping to get my 2011 LS Camaro updated w/the radio control switch (and hopefully the Onstar bluetooth). The first dealer I checked with said he didn't want to do it. After reading through this entire thread, sounds like it can be done, but finding a competent/willing shop is a challenge.

Munday Chevy by 45 & 1960 quoted my around $150. Bring all the documents because depending on who you talk to, they may not have a clue. I think I talked to Jason but not really sure.

Old thread, but Pohanka Chevrolet in Chantilly Va was unsuccessful with programming the BCM. They said they tried, but they could not communicate with the (after market) JVC head unit. Perhaps it doesn't work with aftermarket units . everything else works, onstar etc... but not the newky installed steering wheel control unit. This is still a great thread. Thanks.

Ok, dumb question time. I planned on doing this install. I put a supercharger in myself over the winter, and used the canned tune that came with it. Now the question is, once the controls are in, is it still possible for the dealer to change the computer to accept it without screwing up the canned tune? Or can the company that made the tune just change theirs to accomadate it?

Does anyone know any shops that have successfully done this in the Austin, TX area? I have called three dealerships and gave them the information from the first post, but all three asked looked up my vin and then said I don't have the RPO NZL and said that without it, it can't be done. If I am correct, aren't we adding that code(RPO NZL)? or is it just for certain year and trims of Camaros?

The BCM needs to be reprogrammed to add the codes for RPO NZL is correct. You are getting run around from dealers that are not capable or don't want to do it.

I got a dealer local to me willing but they will not warranty it.

Also have a member here's company said they could do it. However I'd have to ship my BCM to him.
