    Would appreciate if anyone can tell me what years Buick Park Avenues had Body Control Modules. In particular, does a 1996 normal aspiration and a 1993 supercharged have Body Control Modules? Thank you for your reply.

      The 1996 NA has a body control module--ACDELCO Part # 10427827 about 80$ on Rockauto.com

      The 1993 supercharged does not have anything it calls a body control module.

    The 1993 Heater/AC controls do not light up, buttons are not active. Replaced the control with a known working unit, and still is not active, seems like not receiving power, however the blower fan runs on high all the time the key is turned on.

      Is anything else not working? Have you checked fuses for the HVAC? There may be more than one.

      The first thing to check would be the ground IF you can verify there is power on both fuses with the key ON.
      The ground bundles that are under the door sill on each side sometimes had trouble with corrosion due to moisture carried by the shoes into the carpet. I do not know which side the ground for the programmer box and the controls use.

      I do know that my 93 would lose the power door locks AND the HVAC came on with the compressor working and in default mode which is defrost and high fan speed. So I suspect you have a problem ground buss.

      You might try kicking the area with the ground buss with your heel. That sometimes moved pieces and made contact again until the corrosion spread and lifted the contact apart again.

      If you know how to use a voltmeter, check the ground wire from the control.

    Keith, are you still enjoying your '14 Malibu? That dark, rusty-maroon color that's new this year is turning my head, and I see you can get the 1LT with the same wheels you have on yours I think. I like the Impala but I could see my wife parking it by feel, it's so large. I can't afford a new car for years with college for kid no. 2 coming up, but I'd definitely check out the '15 Malibu if I needed a new family car right now. Of course, can't post that publicly for fear of "That car's not competitive!!!!". [non-permissible content removed]. ;) Bill

    You had asked me before if I utilized a Malibu forum. I had but not for a long time, until this morning. I posted about quiet replacement tires, and a hump in the dash pad of my car which is small but I presume will get larger. I posted under "Auditor Bill":
