Resync the door?

Hi to all in Bimmerfest!
I have been a reader for over two years on this site. Never found a reason to join because all my ?'s where here and answered. I have an 01 X5 3.0 5sp manny tranny and up to now have only had routine maintenance issues, until now.
Here in the St. Louis cold I managed to snap off my door handle carrier ( pass front), no problem I called and got one deliverd. I installed with no known surprises until I tried to operate the window from the drivers side door console. NOTHING! Then I tried the central locking system, all doors would operate except the passenger front. Now, the window does operate from the door panel(pass front), the puddle light comes on as does the rest of the interior lighting. The other thing I noticed is that the window switch light doesn't come on when the lights are on. I have no side view mirror adjustment or defrost on that door.
I have tried to resyc the key fob, works great on three doors. pass front nothing.
I disconnected the battery for 1 hour, no change
Lock to Lock, no change
There was a laps of a week between the time I disassembled the door and installed the new part.
I will be totally honest, I didn't disconnect the battery when I replaced the door carrier. I needed some tunes.
Is there a way to resync the door back to the vehicle?
Thanks and I enjoy the wealth of knowledge on this site.
