For 4x4 light, just rotate the steering wheel end to end.
The air bag light will go away after some driving, as already mentioned.

Just make sure you put ~600 ml in the front diff. Not up to the fill hole. And ideally you'd have to register fluid change in the transfer case (Rheingold will suffice).

BMW nor ZF don't make transmission pans, they are made by Filtran. $93 on amazon. 6 bottles of ZF lifeguard 6 is enough, you'd be lucky to fill in 5.

Key code as in for the metal insert? It's less than $40 at a dealer.

The non-CA remote is $150 or so, BTW.

Get a new key from local dealer. You can program it yourself using the existing key to open & start the car, but to enable CA (if equipped equipped) you'll need to pay them for coding.

As someone who took out active tank not so long ago, I can attest the fears of overfilling are greatly exaggerated... if false at all.

I wouldn't put any more fluid, but rather pull the headliner along the edges to locate the leak. Most likely the line connection is loose.

And obviously a lot of things will require drying.
