Low beams always on after coding LCM

I was helping a friend code his 2000 M5's DRLs off tonight. Using NCS expert and dummy, after writing the changed file, the Low Beams (xenons, angel eyes, tail lights) are on all the time now. I've tried: restoring the original config, turning DRLs off and on again, driving the car, disconnecting the battery, and letting the car sleep. All I changed was the "dimmed high beams as DRL" setting using NCS dummy.

Has anyone had a similar issue, or know how I can troubleshoot this?

Default the module with a profile that has manipulation off.

That will code the modules according the option list in the VO/FA string.

If that returns thing back to normal, then play around with coding what you want.
