Smartlock is part of the BCM.

Located under the dash left of the steering column near the left knee when seated in the drivers seat.

I wouldn't, you'll potentially end up with an immobile car

BCM sends enable signal to ecu. Chop that wire and it won't start.

The only smartlock related thing the bcm controls directly is the starter motor and the dash warning lamp

The ecu stops the injectors firing unless it receives the enable signal from the bcm
