Do you mean the clock spring assembly where the multi-function buttons plug into?
Well, yes the clock spring assembly, plus the part under it, the one that has the turn signals, wiper arms, control board. once i changed them, the 3 lights came on, and a professional BMW coding mechanic told me that it only needs to be coded. so, would doing this DIY do the trick? instead of coding it? will it be able to detect malfunctions again?
