2004 545 MPM issues

Hi everyone, bit of an electrical issue.

MPM in the boot got submerged in water a while back. CCC screen started playing up and battery was draining, then the boot started smoking and when i checked the MPM was submerged and was completely frazzled, so i removed it. Battery issues went away, and ive been using the car for a while now with no radio, parking sensors, active steering etc.

Finally got a new MPM from bmw, fitted it and the nothing is working at all still.

Would it need coding in? Im sure i read somewhere that the screen would work and it would say on it about the module needing coding in or something along those lines?

Ive checked every fuse in the boot and glove box with a multimeter, one that was blown was in position 60 and is apparently for telephone, changed that, rest are all fine.

Connector to MPM and the wiring from it all look perfect.

Any clues?

Yes you do have to code the MPM ... The 30g relay is a square black 1inch by 1 inch relay , with a diagonal little handle in the trunk fuse box . It's the biggest fuse in the panel You can't miss it . Install a new one , hopefully that will do the trick .
