Cannot find any exact match and i'm going to call the dealer about it but a quick google search delivered this answer

C1400 Traction Control Valve RF Circuit Failure

MIGHT explain another thread of people having a better running machine from turning OFF the traction control??

Think i'll try it myself
That DTC code is stored in the IPC itself. It does not store or display DTC codes from other modules.

The meaning of that code is: Lost communication with body control module.

You can ignore it unless there are obvious symptoms of a malfunction.

It's not unusual for these kinds of codes (Lost communication with...) to get stored in the IPC because of high network traffic or a transitional state of a communication bus.
