2013 iDrive Controller Replacement Issues

Hello,

I purchased and replaced an iDrive controller from a large volume dealer on Ebay. The controller looks identical (minus different colored wiring) as mine.

The donor vehicle was a F30 320i. My vehicle is a F30 328i. I don't have navigation (at least the software is not installed).

Ebay and the dealer had that the controller was compatible. When I installed it, my car went nuts! Driver restraint warning, TMPS not detected warning, power to my radio and AC controller going on and off, and my car's fan was triggering on and off.

I unplugged the controller and all is well again. Does anyone have any ideas for me?
