Mein Auto: 1998 740IL
LCM replacement and coding

1998 (early so it doesn't have the bosch 5.7 abs) 740il
Initial problems: Abs and TC lights on, srs light on, headlights/dashlights turn off/on at random.
Fixed srs and abs/tc issues and swapped the LCM with one from an 01 740i.
Recoded the vin and mileage without any problems but can't get the high beams and turnsignals to work. My LCM was totally dead (PA Soft wouldn't detect it at all) so I couldn't pull the code data from it to put in the "new" LCM. Am I missing something with PA Soft 1.4 to code the LCM or do I need to get a different program? If so can someone point me in the right direction for it? Any help is much appreciated. If there's someone in the east Dallas area that has the right program I'll gladly come to you for help.
