Codes and errors

A quick scan pulled a few codes.
01 - Fuse or lead for load circuit 1
6B Relay for PW motor, driver's side rear, does not pick up.
6F Relay for PW motor, passenger's side rear, does not pick up.

Using my clamp ohm meter, found a blown fuse. #27 if I remember correctly. The reading map lights started working again. I'll order a new relay once I determine which one is bad.

A replacement used module has arrived. The replacement must from a really late one made. The newer version is about ~1124 X5 units later. Mine has a build date of April '06. For giggles, I disconnected the battery and swapped the GMIII. Nothing worked. The OEM one was put back in. Hatch, tailgate, rear door windows/locks, and seat memory don't work. I was hoping a few things would work so the original one could go out for repairs or testing. The modules are identical except for two numbers. The lower circled numbers are 156B vs 196A. The top right sticker numbers are 6101 vs 6108? The shipping label tore off part the number.

The new module needs to be coded so it works correctly in your vehicle.

Yea. Unfortunately, coding is not on my skill set. I'll have to find outside help. Learning and finding equipment to code would take up too much time right now. Maybe, later I can build the skill and find equipment for tedious tasks. My Foxwell Pro is my best BMW tool right now. There are 3 local shops outside of BMW service available. I may go visit one to get an estimate.
