g'day mate,

its probably not even worth fixing the BCM unless theres a really obvious broken track or joint inside it. They go for about 30 bucks on ebay and are a piece of piss to install.

if your hitting it it will probably be dry joints.

get another one, shouldnt be to expensive.

you may have to relearn your keys/ keypads though

If you are half decent with a soldering iron, just repair it, it's not difficult to get out or open up.

At least open it and have a visual inspection of it, it may be something simple.
