Well today I stopped in to have them reprogram the BCM to accept the new head light switch with the off road light button. After about 45 minutes they called me in from the waiting lounge and informed me that GM would NOT sell them the code and that they were unable to do anything!

Anyone have experience with installing these lights used? How did you get the OEM switch to work? How/where did you get the code to activate them in the BCM?

Any help is appreciated.
I assume you got the switch second hand. Did you inquire if you were to purchase a new switch thru GM, that it would include a BCM activation code?
