I guess... as the circuit that has the puddle lights, cargo light & interior lights has shut off the puddle light & cargo light but interior light still works. fuse is still good. cargo & puddle do not come on when I unlock or open doors. have read that BCM would need to be re-flashed or reset.

will unhooking the battery for a period of time reset the Body Control Module? if yes for how long?
No.

Actual BMS reset needs to be done through software (Forscan).

weird as I emailed Forscan and I got a reply saying NO copy of the email below:

Hello,

Sorry, at this moment FORScan has no Service and Configuration/Programming functions. The Module reset is a service function.

Regards,
FORScan Team

Will the FORScan Lite be able to reset BCM? Have issue with some lights not coming on but others will within the same circuit and bulbs check out good.

My understanding is that FORScan LITE has limited functionality. You can reset using the full licensed version (free) of FORScan loaded on a laptop. Are you using the Lite version?

@trev, he's not asking about the BMS (Battery Maint. System) he's asking about the BCM. ;)

Good catch, my bad.

it did YES.. everything back working. I am done installing LED lights. as they do look great they seem to cause more issues than one would think.
now saying that..... I would LOVE to find a scan tool that can do BCM reset. I have a great OBDII reader but that is just for engine codes..

I got a new BCM and it was all reset however when it restarted, its reading my truck as a dually so now my tire pressure monitor is on. There are no codes being thrown. Will this reset by driving it?
