Are you 100% certain the BCM is flashed to match your vehicle? If not, it's a terrible idea. Even if it is, it's still a terrible idea. The BCMs in these cars are incredibly finicky and I wouldn't trust a used one.

I checked your other thread and I experienced issues almost identical to your first video (the one with the gauges going nuts) when my battery was on its way out. That being said, I'm inclined to agree with BBEngineer that you need to do a parasitic draw test.

Also, when my BCM was shot, my radio and cluster stayed powered up after the car was off and the only way to shut it down was to disconnect the battery. Without having access to your car and actually troubleshooting, I'd suspect you have a faulty BCM that isn't turning off all the other modules in the car causing your battery to drain itself. Have you tested the battery after replacing it to make sure it's still holding a charge?
