Default help: is INPA missing a file ???

Hi All,
I purchased a used/2nd-hand steering angle sensor/module (SAS) from
an E46 or similar car.
my 2003 X5 E53 euro RHD has 3 warning lights on the dash
lit up yellow (dsc, abs & brake)
Inpa states:
"No steering wheel info"
wrong model ID
steering angle reads minus 1444

I know the module needs to be re-coded but it appears Inpa does not have
an X5 E53 file to re-code with, Is Inpa missing a file ??

I worked out how to use DIS for myself
the used/2nd-hand unit is now mated to the vehicle and all 3
warning lights are off (aka "trifecta" ABS, DSC & Brake)

You have discovered (as I did!) that INPA is only of use for reading and turning off fault codes. It won't do coding.

DIS or NCSExpert seem to be favourites for coding.
