Does the exact same footwell module need coding?

My reverse lights went out and I found the broken ground wire in the trunk. After fixing that my reverse lights wont go on so I took it down to the dealer and they told me the Footwell Module needs to be replaced for $925. I don't want to pay nearly a grand to the dealer so I ask if I take out the old one and replace it with the exact same serial number ie 6135 6961133 -02 will I still need to get it coded? I have read many posts and there seems to be a bit of confusion out there. Does anyone know yes or no for certain?

Thanks.

Yes, you will still need to get the FRM coded to your vehicle (vin, etc). If there is a coder in your area, they should be pretty knowledgeable as far as doing that properly.

Thanks. The only one I know of currently is the dealer who want $250 for the coding then $250 for labor and of course $400 for the part. I am wondering what rate anyone else has found from either other dealers or independent mechanics?
