car (EL) sometimes wont start (wont crank)...smartlock jewel flashes code 4 :
"Electronic lock a** to BCM connector open, Electronic lock a** I/O circuit open, Electronic lock a** power supply circuit open."

its not the usual dry solder BEM as i tryed that...

is it likely an internal BEM fault, a wiring/connector fault or a barrel fault?

anyone seen it before?

Could be any of those - I'd swap the BEM as an initial thing. I'm assuming you're running a low/mid series unit, so should be easy to get a spare for nix. And you can check the loom from the side of the barrel (smartlock is the small 4 pin plug) down the column to the BEM.
