B126A FORD Meaning

The Body Control Module (BCM) sends voltage signals to the door lock control switches through the lock and unlock input circuits. When the lock or unlock switch is pressed, the corresponding voltage signal is routed to ground, signaling the BCM to lock or unlock the doors. The door lock control switches have a dedicated ground circuit. The BCM monitors the Drivers Door Interior Lock Switch. The BCM sets the OBDII code when the Drivers Door Interior Lock Switch is not to factory specifications.
