What is the problem?


Not even remotely.

I took my car into the dealership for an oil change and when they completed that, they did the tire rotation and when they reset the computer to read the tire rotation it did not read the change and the alarm continuously went off and would not stop, the dealership said that GM told them that it's the BCM???? The car by the way was working perfectly when I took it in....


Okay well that's completely different from what I thought you meant in the opening post, lol. So basically you have a dash issue - wouldn't reset mileage on tire rotation and now has a continuous dinging - that *could* be the BCM as most interior functions come down to the BCM, or a instrument panel module. I would consult the owner manual on how to reset your display and what possible dinging noise is, and also keep pressure on dealership to fix it since they were the ones to last touch it and it worked fine before. If there is a dealer-issue with the BCM, they would likely have issues a TSB (technical service bulletin), so ask to see that. BTW a bad BCM would be causing all sorts of issues in the car, I think you would have no problem noticing a bad BCM.
