Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
The BCM can only be reset with a diagnostic scanner with BCM capabilities. And if underlying cause of BCM trouble codes being set is not repaired, even with scanner, the BCM trouble code will keep returning. Disconnecting the battery will not work. Unfortunately, you will have to have a shop perform this service.
On average, a diagnostic scanner with BCM capabilities will run between $4-6000. Mine ran almost $6,000, plus annual updates of over a grand every year.
Sorry, the last part of your question just showed up on my side stating the various problems. you need to have a shop scan the BCM for stored trouble codes. It is possible that the BCM itself is bad, but without knowing what code numbrs are, I cant give you a clear diagnosis or avenue of repair.
Did the dealership perform any diagnostics, or check for stored codes? And if so, did you decline further diagnosis to find problem and just request them reset the code? Or were they unable to determine why BCM was setting trouble codes or what the codes were or what they meant?
Ok, there is a TSB(technical service bulletin) on re-programming or (re-flashing) the BCM to take care of power locks not working. This is basically downloading new software into the BCM. If you are still having problems, then it may be neccessary to replace the BCM.
About the only recourse with the dealer would be to ask them to credit the labor time for re-programming the BCM towards the diagnostic labor time to find problem, and/or credit the labor towards repair labor needed. They followed Dodge protocall and directions for re-programming as directed by the TSB. If the re-programming did not repair problem, then there is another issue such as faulty BCM.
