AR147 body computer is an electronic unit on the back side of fuse plate. It controls:
clima device, power windows, power mirrors, remote locking, central locking, lights, etc... in fact it controls almost all electronic devices in the car.
If it dies, or is dying, you have bunch of electric problems like head lights not shutting off when engine off, power windows not working, etc etc.
In most cases body computer drains your battery when car is off and the car (battery) dies after few days.
In my case remote locking is not working. Also, right power window is dead and power mirrors are not working. Sometimes my headlamps will not go off (need to switch them on and off several times) It drains my battery dead in 2-3 days.
So now I am in search of a new body computer. In fact, I already got one (from same car, same equipment, same model year). The problem is that now I am not sure if I can just switch body computer with new one. I am not sure if the car will start? How about remote locking key code?
Can anyone help??
