Unfortunately the recall was not done, given the errors in my car do you believe its the FRM and not the JBE as I don't have any issues with windows or locks. I am in southern California would you happen to know anyone who can assist me with this issue? Thank you

The problem is hat the FRM is a complex module, and when it gets corrupted the symptoms can be quite variable. Its not like a relay where "when it goes bad, the windows dont work"...it can have odd behaviours.

You can probably pick up an FRM3 for $300 ish?

Or pop yours out and send it to these guys:

dont know them, just found on google. Id beter there are guys in socal that can do it.

The sending it out for $100 seems like it is cheaper than taking it to any shop. If it works, great- if not it is a pretty low cost. Maybe call or email them and see what they suggest???
