Long story short - modulemaster rebuilt mine, still have the lights (BRAKE, ABS, and the middle icon), and modulemaster says that the unit just needs to be reprogrammed. Everything works fine now (except the actual ABS/DSC/traction control). Question... what does the dealer actually need to do to "reprogram"? Yes, I got my original module back. Does 1.5 hrs make sense, to test and reprogram?

Thanks!
The steering angle sensor may have to be recalibrated. The control unit may need programming but while it's at the dealer, I would reprogram the control unit and recalibrate the steering angle sensor at the same time. We had the same issue on a 540iT. We replaced the control unit and recalibrated the steering angle sensor and no more warning lights in the instrument cluster.

1.5hrs is a big on the higher side. At the shop we would do 1hr or $90.00.
