Facelift Coupe Adaptive Headlight Aimed Left; No Movement

Hey Guys,

I recently picked up a 2006 330ci.

The adaptive headlights are pointed all the way left and are aimed a bit low.
On start up they do not self test up and down either.

I have searched for days trying to find a way to make them work.
All the sensors are connected and work. I have a reading for the level sensors and the steering angle sensor using a scanner and PA Soft.
Is there any way to manually force the lights to self test or move with a scanner or programmer? Maybe PA Soft?

Thanks

You bought the car without touching anything? Or sight unseen? Tough luck bec the coupe isnt like the sedans, will have to heat it to open it.

Does anyone have any ideas on a fix to this?

Bump again. Still stumped. Tried everything short of manually jumping the stepper motors to move them straight ahead.
