U1000 LINCOLN Meaning

The Body Control Module (BCM) uses solid-state drivers (Field Effect Transistors (FET)) to control the output of several vehicle systems. When an overload occurs on any of these drivers, the BCM disables the output and tracks the number of repetitive faults on each of these circuits. The module compares this number of overloads to 3 progressive thresholds established for each circuit. At each threshold, Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) U1000:00 sets along with the DTC associated with the affected circuit.
