Adaptive Headlight Code - Coding error or timeout

After clearing codes in FRM3 I still have 2 headlight module errors on my F10 550 with adaptive headlights. After an accident I replaced the headlights with used modules.

0x800FC3 Treiber-Modul Scheinwerfer (TMS) links: Kodierfehler oder timeout
Headlight driver module (TMS) left: coding error or timeout
EDIABas (Tool32.exe) FRM3.prg can read the part number on the module but the code remains active and can't be cleared. I couldn't find anything in E-Sys to reset or code the modules. Any experience!?!?!?

0x800FC9 LM_LIN Busfehler TMS rechts
LM_LIN bus error TMS right
EDIABas (Tool32.exe) FRM3.prg can't read this module. Maybe it is a bad part or maybe it needs to be coded?

I've checked all vehicle fuses and no problems were found. I swapped the modules from right to left and the codes moved with the modules.

Is there a way to flash the modules with new software?
