So the gauge cluster on my GFs 2007 S-max broke and had to be replaced. It had screen issues + radio power issues which I've come to understand are common and the quickest fix is to replace the gauge cluster. So I bought a used cluster of the same model with lower mileage, swapped the clusters and adjusted the odometer mileage on the new one without issues.
This car has not been driven since summer, but I've periodically charged the battery and started the engine a couple of times and let it run until it's warm. I had the battery charger connected while using FORScan, and when uploading the SBL (more on this later) the engine was idling because otherwise voltage was too low to perform the procedure.
So, to the issue:
On the new cluster, the airbag and ESP (?) warning lights are lit. At first I didn't think of the warning lights, but they were definitely there before writing the new odo value - I know because I took photos:
I added the error log as attachment issues new cluster.txt as not to mess upp the post by pasting it inline. I see that a lot of modules seem to have lost contact with the BCM (code U0140), but most are old messages. Also the HVAC and IPC complains about incompatible configuration (code U2101). Please ignore Lost Communication With Rain Sensing Module and Lost Communication With Radio error messages as the rain sensor was missing when we bought the car and the radio has been swapped to an aftermarket one.
What looks important to me, apart from the incompatible configuration messages, is the ABS "lost communication with BCM" error message, as this seems to be what's causing the warning lights: The log says "The ABS, EBD, TCS and ESP lamps are illuminated", but on the other hand it also says "Previously Set DTC - Not Present at Time of Request", so I'm confused. Could this be a stored DTC in the new gauge cluster? I think I deleted the errors but they came back.
If I swap back to the old cluster, no error messages are present.
And what about the incompatible configuration? I downloaded and saved the CC master from BCM and CC backup from the original IPC without issues, thinking I might have to upload this config to the new IPC, but I am not even able to open the CC backup from the new IPC:
