Default Different/Wrong VINs in FG (e39)

Hi Everyone,

It is my first time posting here and I want to thank you all in advance. I'm pretty experienced with wrenching but a total beginner on the coding side of things so I was hoping I could get some help/insight.

I was trying to code a remanufactured ABS module for my newly acquired e39 using NCSExpert and then with Progman and none of my modules came up as available to code. While trying to figure out the issue, I noticed that when I load a profile/ZCS, the EWS was the only one that showed my VIN in the FG field while the IKE and KMB both show the same/wrong VIN.

I know the ZCS is supposed to be comprised of the GM, SA, and VN but could the wrong/multiple VINs be the issue and if so, can someone direct me to somewhere I can learn to fix this? Like I said, I'm a newcomer to the coding world so dumbed down instructions would be really helpful.

There were over 50 error codes in my "body" modules so I'm hoping/assuming that the wrong VIN had to do with a lot of those. I've found many, many mechanical things that were really carelessly done on this car, including a crappy HID lights/fogs install and removal, so my guess is that someone tried coding things in the past and made a mess.

Also, while we're at it, can anyone point me to a place I can download a ZCS decoder? I googled all over the place but all the links/torrents I found were dead.

Thanks Again!
