Possible mistake? Dash lights after coding, won't go away

Hi All. I'm hoping some of you can help me figure out what's wrong. About a week ago, after a coding session I received the dash lights and the iDrive error message in the pictures. I also pulled the below codes. I don't quite understand 5F60. I think I might have accidentally pressed "process car" while in NCS Expert. The errors have stayed on after a week. I have tried the steering reset (turning the wheel lock-to-lock) but errors persist. Any ideas how I can fix this? Do I need to revert some modules? If yes, which ones? Thanks.

55C3 AWD limp-home control activated. No DSC specified nominal torque
5F60 Control module not for vehicle with active front steering
Variantencodierung Wert passt nicht zum Fahrzeuggeschwindigkeit ---> Variant encoding value does not match the vehicle

I'd code the entire car back to default using expert mode. Then any changes to DSC module you have to re calibrate steering angle sensor. Do this with DIS or ISTA D. Both are available free online.

All will be OK.

Thanks for your response. After work tonight, I reverted the BDSC and VGSG modules back to stock with NCS Expert. I then recalibrated the steering angle sensor with both INPA and Tool32. This did not work and the lights/codes remained.

I thought reverting just the BDSC and VGSG modules would be enough since that is where the errors codes are. Do you think I need to revert all modules? Do I have to use DIS or ISTA D, or INPA/Tool32 will also work? Thanks.

Did you clear the codes after? I haven't performed calibration with INPA or Tool32 before. Try running a test plan with ISTA D. If you need links to the software pm me.

When I had a similar problem I reverted all modules back to VO.

Calibrate a sensor, clear codes and drive few miles and all should be fine.

What sp-daten version do you use?

Last night I only drove for about a mile and returned home. Maybe I needed to drive more? I'm currently using v53.3, but when the issue came up I was using v49. I updated because I thought the issue was caused by old daten files. No difference so far

not the same codes, but when i bent a control arm, i got DSC, DTC, ABS to light up. after we replaced the control arm and drove less than a mile (5mph in the company parking lot), the lights disappeared. this was before i learned how to code, too. hopefully your issue goes away. GL!

Out of interest when you hit 'process car' was your FSW_PSW.MAN file empty? and had you previously used your setup with another vehicle?

It might have had the man file from my old e90 328, also a 2011 xDrive.

Maybe just use expermode profile ibtead of empty man to recode the module.

Finally got it resolved tonight! I decided to suck it up and revert the whole car back to stock module by module. After I reverted the NFRM module, the error lights automatically disappeared. I finished off the rest of the modules just in case and recalibrated the steering angle sensor for good measure. Thank you Sensible_, cryptomit, and J-Spec Dan. I really appreciate you taking time out to comment and give advice!
