If a new LCM was not that expensive, I would have gone the recode route without second thought. I was able however to purchase a NEW LCM over ebay for $50 which I had it coded with Autologic for the LED. No issues at all.

But I removed that setup after finding on long trips the resistors and heatsink was heating to a point where I found it unsafe, thus using the EE resitor packs which seem to dissipate heat/power better as they don't heat up.

PS. it was inside a IP6 rated case, but the outside of the case started showing signs of melting
