Mein Auto: 1996 bmw 318i
help me please

Ok i recently traded my truck for a 1996 bmw 318i, i love the car its got strong great running motor but is turning out to be a electrical nightmare so im hoping someone on here can help me out. Ok first problem, when i got the car the climate control module didnt work at all no lights no nothing and the floor heater constantly ran weather the module was plugged in or not. So got to searching around online and came across post about replacing the capacitor in module, so i did now i have lights to the buttons and the floor heater shut off but still not getting any use out of the buttons and display not turning on. My question on that is do i need to replace the ac/heater module behind the glove compartment or i heard that upon fixing the climate control module you must get it reprogramed to your cars vin to work so is it possible i may need to do that and if so is it possible to reprogram it myself or must it be taken to a shop. Also the control module behind the glove box if repaired or replaced does it too need to be programed to your cars vin in order to work.Any input On this will be greatly appreciated thankyou.
