Angry Adaptive headlight error FIX

I read numerous threads and still havent gotten a direct solution. I am out of warranty, my headlight was shot and had condensation, i replaced the ballast and the passenger turns on but i still have the Adaptive headlight error.

Do i have to replace the entire headlight now? is there a "control module" for that headlight which i can replace and fix this Error?

There is definitely an adaptive control module. I'll look for a part number, but it definitely exists.

Thanks man, yea I'm definite my passenger headlight is the issue since it dosent move at all. But when I was in the wheel well and replacing the ballast I didn't see any other modules? Is there a separate control module for each light or is it one main one?
I'm hopin I can just replace the broken part rather than replace the entire assembly.

I can disable the whole system. Lights won't turn left-right but there won't be any errors as well.

there are different AHL modules under each headlight. There both black and you can buy them from ebay. You will need to recode the modules afterwards

You dont need to recode anything. Plug and play.

^^That part doesnt apply to an E92. It's just a sensor that plugs in, 60-85 bucks on Ebay.
