BMW E87 aftermarket headlights coding

Hello,
my friend have problem on his car bought few days ago and need help.
Its BMW E87 118d 2006. and it had in original halogen headligts. Last owner had a small accident and one of headlights was broken and then he decided to put xenon headlights. OEM retrofit was too expensive so he bought DEPO xenon headlights which is just mounted and connected to car, plug and play.
Problem is when he starts the car, xenon bulbs "flashes" few times each side, then he turn on lights all is OK first minute, then headlight error appears on dash and after about 20 seconds car turns off only one xenon bulb, sometimes left, sometimes right, I think depending of which bulb error is shown first.
All components work so I belive thats no problem in them, logicaly that has to be fixed by coding FRM module. Do someone here maybe know what to do or had case like that? I attached coding data from his FRM so please can someone check coding, is there something wrong?

Thank you cryptomit.
We tried to code that today and there is another problem. When I change that values and save them in FSW_PSW.MAN, proceed coding, all goes OK, with no errors but car anyway do cold and warm checks. Then I read FSW_PSW.TRC again and all values was aktiv instead nicht_aktiv, coding didnt change anything.... I tried that few times with no luck, then I tried code FRM also on my E90 and all went OK, coding passed so with NCS Expert and cable is all good. Why I cant change values in that FRM module?

Hmmm, well your problems are solved easily by coding as per cryptomit suggestions.

However your setup for E87 Chassis is not correct if your coding is having no effect.

What daten version are you using?

I would update them. Latest available to forums is v54.0 I believe.

Maybe you have some short-circuit in your headlight.
Check it in Tool32.
