      Clear U1040 Bcm failure code?

      So I decided to scan my car. I still have the BCM loss communication error. I can't clear it in the Torque App. It's showing as a "historic fault". And auto zones scanner shows it as a "permanent fault".

      Can Dodge clear this code?

      I think my BCM is fine and everything electrical including my wipers work fine. Any ideas?

      Probably related to all the shit you did with the headlights.

      It's not an active code. it's historic. so yes, from a long time ago when I messed up my headlights

      Probably have to get the dealer to clear it.

      i took mine in this weekend for the same issue. its stored and they wanted $100 bucks to scan it so it's not covered by the warranty. as long as I don't receive any CEL's i guess it still works.

      Permanent DTCs are different from historic DTCs in that merely historic codes can be cleared. I've attached an article that explains what "permanent" DTCs are and why they exist (TLDR: to prevent people cheating OBD2 emissions testing). You should be able to clear it yourself by doing a "Universal Trip Drive Pattern" (aka "Basic Drive Cycle"), as long as all of the systems are able to come to a "Ready" state for emissions testing.
