Default E46 M3 '04 - VO original restore?

Greetings,

I coded my friend's 04 e46 m3 manual for m-track mode via ncs expert. I followed this guide [Only for registered users... ] . Unfortunately, the part that needs to be done in expertmode, I did in Revtor. Once everything was done, I turned on the car, and - when i press DSC nothing happens (expected behavior is m-track mode light illuminates OR DSC light illuminates). When I hold it, the dsc light appears however.

My assumption was that doing it in revtor's is incorrect. So I redid everything in expertmode, and switched to revtor when appropriate. Same result.

My conclusion is that the LED/fuse is broken, or that I missed a step.

How do I remove the $7MA that I added to the VO? I thought I did it right by hitting the delete key, but NCS expert still tries to code the Mk60 when I do process car (to restore all initial values) and is rejected by the ECU.

Some guidance is appreciated. I've done this in an '06 and there was no issue.

I used the second module to pull the unaltered VO and process car.

Everything went right until it got to TCU, where it failed.

Assuming this correctly reset the original parameters, I still can't get the DSC light to come on with a single press. Long press it comes on...

You might want to test your cluster lights by using the OBC hidden code 2.0.
[Only for registered users... ]
If you hold in the trip meter reset before turning the key to position 1, you will not reset your trip meter every time.
Test 2.0 should light up a circular arrow just below and to the left of the trip reset button. That's the M Track symbol for the E46 M3.
Pushing the DSC button and releasing should turn the M Track light on when the car is running and it's programmed correctly. Holding the DSC button should light up the DCS light (M Track will go off) indicating that DSC is disabled.
I've done this on my 2003 M3 without any problems, but have never tried to remove a VO code.
