Software in the bcm varies depending on the options on the car, so a used one may or may not work - can't say for sure...

You might try your local BMW specialist - they may have the appropriate equipment / software.

I have had it in and out several time looking for a problem so I know it’s not the connection.so your guess it needs reprogramming.

All of the dash / instrumentation lighting is controlled by the body control module (BCM) located in the passenger side kick panel. 

You might try the simple first and try disconnecting / re connecting the connectors at the BCM.

We have seen electrical gremlins like this solved by having the dealer reload the software into the BCM.. for whatever reason, the software can get corrupted - occasionally.

It's also possible the BCM may be defective....
