EDC Malfunction after pulling camber pins, REALLY!?!

So I just pulled the alignment pins to attain more negative chamber from this DIY:
http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=521177

I followed everything to a T and even went and picked up some beers as per the directions haha. So everything went perfect, I even got an alignment afterwords and then like 15 minutes after I get the alignment, "EDC malfunction" comes up. I did use all 3 EDC settings after pulling the pins and did drive around for 50 minutes and then after the alignment the message came up. Here are the alignment specs I am currently running:
Front left -1.75 camber, 1/32 toe
Front right -1.4 camber, 1/16 toe
Rear left -1.57 camber, 1/16 toe
Rear right -1.31 camber, 1/16 toe

I even had a friend come over and bounce the car up and down while I turned the wheel to let the suspension settle. The only thing I didn't do was to roll the car forward and backward very far because my driveway is a steep decline after the garage. Could this be the issue? I didn't allow the suspension to settle enough?

I pulled both EDC modules off an reattached and they look fine. If you fix a problem on a BMW does the error message go away or do you have to bring it to a service center no matter what? I may have to bring it to the dealership tomorrow morning, dammit! Anyone have any suggestions?

Send a message via MSN to montreal red
for many codes on a bmw, the warning message will only go away after you visit the dealership or a qualified shop that can erase the fault code. i think you should be ok once you reset the fault code.

OK well I fixed it!!!

So I did all directions except I was unable to roll the car back and forth more than 5 feet (would have risked going down our steep driveway), so the suspension and EDC did not settle enough and I got a malfunction. So I pulled the 3 bolts off the circle thing rolled the car back and forth 15 feet while bouncing the car and also turning the steering wheel from lock to lock and now its fixed!!! So I can attest that is a very important step!!!

And the best part is that I don't have to go to the dealership to reset the code. Once I fixed it, it went away, AMAZING!!

MODS you can delete this thread if you want to, unless you think the information will be helpful to someone else!

When you did the rolling back and forth, was the car on? I'm going to do this now. Thanks.
