ok

Sorry about the wait. The module will need to be programmed before driving as it can cause transmission codes and shifting issues if no data is available from transfer case.

I see that the part number for the transfer case conrtol module is the same part number for several BMW models. Does that mean a 535ix control module will work on a 335ix etc. if it states so?

As long as the module part number is ***** it will be exchangable.
