I have a 2000 intrigue GX, and about 4 or 5 years ago I found a 2001 GL for my neighbor (she still has it, she's almost 92 years old now, still drives it 4-5000 miles a year)

-about a year after she bought it, she started getting all kinds of warning lights on the dash, and it was doing erratic shifting and would even stall out while driving. It went to a Chevy dealer who kept it for more than a week, and they decided it needed a new body control module (BCM). It was changed and I, who was dealing with the dealer for her, went to pick it up, and within two miles of the dealership, it exhibited the same issues-after a bill of about $700!

It went straight back, and they replaced the ignition switch (another $400), and that solved all issues. To this day, I think they were incorrect in replacing the BCM, but in your case maybe it IS defective. It has to be programmed with a Tech II at the dealer if it is changed out, so you may have to at least go to a dealer so that they can put it on a scanner to see if the BCM is the problem.

If you haven't already done it, try disconnecting the battery negative connection, then unplug the BCM (directly over your feet, remove the panel on the driver side under the steering column, it has a large harness/plug). Visually inspect the plug and the pins in the BCM to see if there might be some misalignment, maybe spray (gently) both connecting surfaces with electronic switch cleaner, reassemble and connect the battery. On another note, if you haven't replaced the battery in two or three years, have it load tested (free) at an Advance or Auto Zone/Pep Boys just to be sure it is not an issue of a weak battery or alternator-it can cause havoc with sensors and modules if the basic electrical capacity of the battery is not strong. Good luck.

I repaired my gauge cluster by removing it and then the circuit board in order to re-flow/solder 2 broken resistor connections. I can't seem to find the online tutorial I referenced documenting the repair, but this youtube video from a 2001 buick regal cluster I believe shows the same or similar repair (after getting the cluster out). Ignore the prndl part. Skip to 2:43 to see the resistors.
