You will have to purchase a new FRM2 from ebay, replace the old module with the new one. Then you must program the module to the latest firmware(which is done to encode your VIN number) using winkfp. After that, tool32 must be used to confirm that the vin is written to the module. Then NCSExpert is used to write the vehicle order from the CAS(existing original computer) to the new FRM(NFRM). This automatically programs the module with options that should work perfectly with your car. Then you must simulate the make year whenever coding the NFRM. Long process but it shouldnt take more than 20 minutes(with programming time into that number)
