No it can't because the AP is MARRIED to car A. You need to UNMARRY Car A and get it MARRIED to Car B to clear the codes.

True, and after you clear the CEL and read your live data for the period of time the AP is married to Car B, you could UNMARRY it from Car B and REMARRY it to Car A and everybody will be happy... except Car B because it will remain untuned - unless it had a protune before the AP was introduced, in which case I don't really know what would happen. I suppose the protune would be lost? Or is there a way to save the protuned map in the AP? Anybody wanna chime in here?

I think the accessport would read that map as "stock" and save it, then when you use the "revert to stock" feature, it would reload it.

It won't do anything is my understanding. Do you have access to the old ECU? If you could at least pull the other ECU for a day, it could be done. Otherwise you'de have to send in that AP to COBB, they COULD do it, but I'm not sure they would. It's more profitable to have you buy a new one.
