I'd liked to know what fault code 72 in the General Control module is(It at least looks to be code 72 from your pic), did they not say anything about it?
Well after speaking to Service Tech , my car is booked back into stealers on monday for them to "check the coding".
Am justing building myself up for the battle when they try to charge me for correcting the mistake that they made first time around!!
In short i have become deeply illusioned with the BMW dealers aftersales policy.
Car was booked back in for them to check their initial coding, however they wanted another £100 to check what they did first time although they still insisted it was coded correctly.
I refused to pay this and insisted they told me what the error showing was. They wheeled out Tech who did the coding who said it was coming from the interior lights (which all work fine and dandy) and to find out what was causing it they would have to strip the whole system and check it bit by bit.
At this point i lifted my keys and walked out
thanks and sorry for my bad english

Well finally, nearly 2 years on from starting this thread i've managed to get my OBC working!!!!!!!
Despite so called "Professional" BMW dealers looking at the car and charging £100 an hour to code the OBC they could''t activate it.
On reading many threads online I got interested in the self diagnosing and coding software, and after battling my reservations about a lack of knowledge and fear of bricking the car I purchased a Diagnostic cable and software on ebay for £20 on thursday.
After a long installation to my laptop of the software, i used Progman SSS v32 and was able to activate it in 5 mins.
Sorry for reactivating this thread but just thought i'd post on my success.
No apology required vb its just great that you didn't give up on the task and you've finally cracked it
any further info or method on how you did this via SSS will be greatly received?
