I think you can do certain amount of coding but it is ‘asbuilt’ anything else requires reprogramming which forscan is not able to do.

So to sum up if it came from factory like it you can recode.

What’s the problem with BCM?

Oh no, BCM failure is like a dealer only job and we all know what they’re like when it comes to charging for “interesting” problems :(

As suggested, I’d try and see if you can get a pre-programmed one

Try ECU testing ltd and BBA reman, not sure if they can code a new one but they can certainly test and repair or exchange the BCM (if your one is dead it may not be possible to clone an exchange until call them and ask, the fee to investigate is not much, around £50).
