Question Bad lighting Control Module?

I have a 2002 330XI with xenon HID and angeleyes. The right-side xenon stopped working a few days ago along with the high beams (except when using "flash to pass") and the fog lights which I am told only work if the high beams work?

I tried a new xenon bulb and it still didn't work.

Today when driving to work in VERY bright sunlight the auto-lights stayed on the whole way which hasn't happened in the 2 months that I have had the car.

I am starting to think that its a computer problem...

Does anyone have any recommendations on how I might be able to troubleshoot this issue?

If it is the LCM can i somehow repalce it myself and/or at least buy the part myself for shop replacement?

yea me too. i need help...bad! i swapped the light control module w/ my sister (she has the same car). and the fault was still there. that leads me to believe that the light control module is not the problem. my whole car is torn apart right now looking for a ground. no luck..yet.
