Adaptive Headlight Module - Programming DIY?

Hey guys,

Had some condensation in my headlight recently and it burnt out the control module underneath the headlight, which doubles as a ballast and the adaptive headlight module.

I got a replacement adaptive headlight module on eBay and replaced it and now the headlight fires up, but the headlight is aimed to the far right and does not center. I've been doing some research and it seems like everyone is saying that the adaptive headlight module needs to be programmed.

Most people have gone to the dealer to get it programmed, but my question is: can we DIY program the adaptive headlight module?

Thanks

I had someone message me with instructions on how to code it myself, but I haven't had time to do it yet.

However, even though I haven't coded it, the light seems to be functioning and I haven't gotten any error messages. The adaptive functionalities aren't working, but the light does autolevel when you start it up.
