Do you know if the donor unit is from a similarly optioned mini? for example, yours is a HT, the donor is also a HT. even though both units are HIGH EKS, the donor might have the Halogen headlights! unless verified it's HID lights.

I doubt the wires are damaged this fast. Try this and if it works, return the one you just bought

I just received an extended warranty notice for the FRM, 10 years/156K miles, whichever occurs first. I've got a 2013 Coupe. There are instructions included for refunds of prior repairs.

I also received one last week on my 2011 JCW. Hopefully this will help those that are having issues. So far so good with mine.

Anyone able to program my FWM?

Hi,
My battery had to be jumped and now I have all the symptoms listed here:
-front windows donít work, back ones do
-hazards donít work
-dash lights donít work
-no turn signals
-no high beams
-headlights always on unless car turned off
-back windows work
From this thread it sounds like a bad FRW. I did unplug my battery for about 4 hours but no dice. Iíll try it overnight but Iím not hopeful.

If if I find a FRM that works for my car, would someone be able to program it for me? I donít have the tools. Do you suggest trying a brand new battery first?

i have a 2011 Countryman R60 and am in Fredericksburg, TX. Willing to drive to you for help. Desperate, donít have a lot of cash and have other repairs needed (accidentally went off-roading)

thanks!!

Thanks for for any help.

Has anyone had their 2 window motors burned because of a faulty FMR module. When the service light came on, one hour later smoke was coming through the door handle of the passenger door. Mini replaced the module but refuses to admit a "cause & effect" anyone???

I had a leak and wrecked my FRM. Headlights flashing when “off” and both windows didn’t work.

Got an ebay replacement and surprisingly everything worked again right off the bat, except for the reverse lights. I have all the BMW software from working on my E60 BMW once but my version of INPA doesn’t have an R56 profile. Anyone know how to add that?? Looks like I might need an R56.ENG file, and maybe others? TIA!
