Exclamation Please help pdc e60

Please help my car is a late 2006 bmw 523i m sport the other day it was snowing hard , I cleared my car got in to drive and there was a pdc failure message , I opened boot to find water had got in to my spare wheel space the pdc unit was soaking , I disconnected it and put it in a bag of rice to dry out in a warm place, today I connected it back up fault still present , I went around car and listened to sensors all clicking,
Just now I purchased a new pdc controller from bmw at a cost of£205
I have fitted this new unit and still there is a pdc fault
Does this unit need coding if so how much would it cost
A friend of mine had this problem and a new pdc was installed without coding and worked a treat
Any other things I should check

Thank you

If your friend's unit was a PnP then I would check all your connections to make sure there is no corrosion in the connections first.
