We rewired it and tried it again with the same result. The only thing different we did was take the red wire to the + terminal of the battery and the brown wire to the - terminal of the battery. My friend laughed because the instructions said the brown goes to PIN31 wire. It says 31 on the diagram because that is an actual BMW diagram. He said 31 means ground and so it should work going straight from the battery. Not sure how to make this thing work now.
Wiring should be the following:

PIN2 from Module >> PIN15 on EDC connector
PIN10 from Module >> PIN14 on EDC connector
PIN3 from Module >> Red wire removed from EDC connector (BMW harness)
PIN11 from Module >> Blue/Red Wire removed from EDC connector (BMW harness)

Power/Ground can be obtained from the white connector:

PIN1 = +12V Power
PIN6 = Ground

Hope this helps.
