LED Interior Light Fix - Please help!! :(

Hi guys, this is my first post on here so I apologise if this topic has previously been discussed ...

I currently have an issue where my lighting control module (footwell lighting module) in my BMW E92 has an error message on there that stops the module from supplying power to the lower bulbs in the vehicle (driver and passenger footwell, rear footwell, under door lighting).

This problem occurred when I was fitting the LED bulbs in the rear footwell. For some reason the bulbs didn't work, and when I turned the ignition on and off, the power to the bulbs under the doors and in both front footwells has been cut.

A BMW specialist garage (Blackpool Motor Works) tried to reset the module and wipe the message but they couldnít, however they did test the lights through their diagnostics machine and all of them worked fine, but when they tried getting them to illuminate off the battery without the diagnostics machine, they still didnít work.

They then told me I would need to update the software in the box (£90) so the box would recognise the LED bulbs, but if that failed then I would need to purchase and get installed a new lighting control module box (£150-£200).

Has anyone got any experience with this or know of any other route to fix the problem. I have checked all the light related fuses which were fine and reset the battery.
