x5 e53 2006 corrupt instruments

Hi all, This car has a long story but i will cut to the chase. The instrument cluster i think got corrupted and then i reprogrammed the whole car with the wrong VO that was stored in the cluster. This led to the rear boot lock not working, air bags system with wrong settings, wrong suspension module (twin axle instead of single suspension), tyre monitoring not working and rear light fault on dash when all lights are ok. I put a second hand gm3 on the car and this rectified the boot locks and suspension module fault. So i bought a new gm3 and coded this with the cars VO but this just led to the gm3 not working again.

Next i put a second hand instruments in, i have ista and used this to pull out the VO from the 2nd hand dash, i then put the original dash back in and coded the rest of the cars modules with this VO. The car then had boot locks working and the suspension fault gone. I still have airbag not configured properly, tyre monitoring fault and the rear lights fault on the dash.

Can i use NCS to fix this car? I dont have a original file to copy from. Ive just ordered a new copy of inpa/ncs as my one wont work. I have never had to use ncs before but i do alot of programming with either sss or the new ISTA.

Any pointers would be appreciated.
