It does not "persist", meaning it will only show the latest error, according
to the manual, on page:

They also mention that it will not be changed if the user does not have
permission to do what you intend or if the connection has been closed

Good luck,

thing. That which produces it is good maintenance; that which disturbs it is
poor maintenance. What we call workability of the machine is just an
objectification of this peace of mind. The ultimate test is always your own
serenity." - Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.
