      That is what I thought at first, but everywhere I have read has said when the BCM goes you lose things like bluetooth, which isn't the case for me... everything works perfectly apart from this flashing odometer and my wacky speakers (which do still work, just very weirdly)

      That's why I suggested a used BCM. It should cost only $30 to $40 if you pull it yourself at a self serve junkyard. I have couple spares in my garage since they are fairly easy to pull. Let me know your part number. VIN write is the last thing on the pull down menu.

      Well, I tried changing my headlights back to the stock ones, and doing another proxy alignment after that and it still was flashing. That was the only thing I could think that would cause it.
      I have also tried a lot of proxy alignments with it still flashing and not changing my speaker quality back to normal. So I dare to say it is my BCM...

      I will check with them and see what my part number is, and would appreciate it so much if you have one you would be willing to let go if it is the right one... I have searched so many junkyards around where I live and darts do not seem to like to be taken there 😕 I have been wanting to grab so many extra parts but have not been able to find any...

      Thank you so much for all the help though! I am more experienced with body work, and a little experienced with replacing parts, but when it comes to anything dealing with the computer and such, it is all totally new to me! So thank you for everything 😊 I will let you know whenever I hear back from them.

      Thanks

      Your original number is 68189480AC but has since superseded in this sequence
      68189480AD
      68189480AE
      68189480AF
      68189480AG

      All would technically be correct

      Also, I did some googling and found this... I really can't find much else on it but I do have a 2013, not sure when it was made... https://m.autoserviceprofessional.co...oftware-glitch

      There are 2 2013's at that junkyard. It will be the end of next week before I get there. There are several of that part number listed on eBay right now but they are not cheap. You can check the drivers door sticker for the MDH which will tell you when your Dart was built to see if that tsb applies to your Dart.

      "This TSB applies to 2013 Dodge Dart vehicles built before July 24, 2012 (MDH 0724XX)." Mine is 041714, wouldn't that be before so wouldn't mine apply? I have a 2013 2.0.

      There were 198 tsbs for the 2013 Dart. This link says "Avoid like the Plague".
      https://www.carcomplaints.com/Dodge/Dart/2013/tsbs/
      It's possible another tsb has a flash that does apply to your BCM. No idea what it would cost for a dealer to flash the latest revision to your BCM or if it would fix the problem. If I find the correct part number next week, I'll send it to you to try for the cost of shipping.

      That would be wonderful! Thank you so much ☺️ Would a different BCM effect any of my added features? Like fog lights is one I know a lot of darts do not have.

      I'll send you a PM if I find the right BCM. Running the PROXI should take care of upgrades like fog lights.
