Rheingold Fault Codes help

I have a question in regards to 2 fault codes that I extracted using Rheingold S/W.
1. 030490. Steering Wheel Electronic Module (LRE). Missing LIN Slave
2. B7F8CB. CID: Image data invalid or faulty

The effect modules according to Rheingold are HU-H and SZL. I will try to attach screenshots for references.
The car is pretty much stock with few regular coding performed and Steering Wheel retrofit from regular Non-Sport to M6. All internal components with in the steering wheel were changed and asked BMW Dealer to install it for me as the car was for maintenance anyway.

Anybody knows what this could be or cause these faults to appear? I tried to clear them but they show up immediately after re-scan. None of them are causing anything not to operate properly but I am just carious and want to have it resolved for peace of mind.

Thank you

Thank you fmfm for helping out again.
I did click on 'Calculate Test Plan' and extracted the information provided. I have also tried to perform necessary test within the Rheingold Application to confirm proper functionality to the ability I can without taking anything apart.
The only explanation I have to these faults are:
1. The car originally came with no Backup Camera. One was retrofitted by connecting to the IDrive screen using pass-true connector between the LCD and Wire harness itself. I still don't understand why this will cause image error but maybe it is what it is.

2. The Steering Wheel retrofit using M6 comes with Active Cruise Control and Lane Departure features that Steering Wheel Electrical Module supports while the car doesn't. The BUS interface senses no voltage on these lanes causing the fault to appear.

Do you think my explanation makes sense or I am missing something in here? BTW, I am attaching screen shots of what these faults are.

well...i had an issue that in a way similar to that, and it was caused by having different i-step versions on the car ECU's; which later i fixed it with ista/p. so i recommend diagnosis with ista/p and see what happens.

yes, ista/p is for programming and used when installing new ecu's into the car.
i think there is another way with e-sys but i dont know the details of it

Not Rheingold.
I am talking about e-sys.
It should look like this:

I would VO code the SZL ecu and see if this will fix the problem.
Before that, please post a picture of your car options present in FA, like this:


but with all the options visible.

I am sorry but you lost me by saying "VO code the SZL ecu". Is it something I can do on my own?

I am attaching a list of all the Options my car has.
BTW, very interesting thing happened today, my Steering Wheel did tilt down when I started the car for a few times. I tried scanning for fault code and found nothing besides the 2 I already have. I then went and tried coding to change Blinkers to blink for more than 3 times but unsuccessful. After that the Steering Wheel tilted no problem. Weird.

From your options list I can see that you have heated steering wheel.
In your first post you said that you initialy had regular steering wheel.
What did you actualy changed?
Please tell me in what configuration did you started and which is you current setup regarding the steering wheel.

Temper sorry if I wasn't clear.
My original Steering Wheel was Non-Sport, heated steering wheel.
I retrofitted to M5/M6 2015 Steering Wheel with Round Air-Bag assembly. The following components were changed:
1. Steering Control Module that supports Lane Change Vibration, Paddle Shifters, and Active Cruse Control Options but I don't use neither of them.
2. Wire Harness within the steering wheel to accommodate the overall connectivity
3. Air Bag
4. Various plastic components to finish the steering wheel but irrelevant to the problem

The new module supports heating function?
There are 3 variants of module:
vibrations only,
heating only,
vibrations+heating.
Did you tried to VO code SZL ecu?

Yes, the new module does support vibration+heating but I only use heating as I don't have a vibrator populated in the steering wheel.

Can you please explain what you meant by VO code?

Thanks

In esys:
Read FA, read SVT, activate FA, select SZL ecu, right click on the SZL ecu, select CODE.
If this doesn't fix your error I think is an hardware problem.

Thanks Temper. Now I know what you mean. I actually have tried already past weekend with no successful results. According to Rheingold it says replace Steering Wheel Control Module but everything that suppose to work works and th4 module is new. Go figure.

Thanks for your help
