I'm confused. Would the three amber lights (BRAKE/DSC/ASC) go back on or would something "else" happen as intimated in this thread:
- E39 ABS Module, what if one does not code the VIN

So far, we have highly inconsistent data points, but, what happens after 200 miles may also depend on the delta between:
  • The transmission coding (A or M) of the old module versus the new
  • The engine model & year coding of the old module versus the new

Please do post a picture!

Nobody is going to help us (or the next guy) except us together, as a team!

For that, every single bit of information is precious. Bill ripped open his friend's ABS control module, for example, as a sacrificial lamb ... and I had to (travel the Internet) go to Russia to find out about the steel wires!
