Basic Module

Hi All. I have a 525diesel 2001 on a y plate. I had a problem last year when the battery kept draining and found out that it was the blower resister at fault. I had it changed and it was fine untill now and now I am having the same problem with the battery going flat when the car is parked.
I have had a diagnostic check done and now told by BMW that it is the BASIC MODULE that is at fault. part number 61356942042.
The cost for this approx 400 fitted. To save some money I was going to buy a second had module and get it fitted by my local garage at a fraction of the cost.
I was told by BMW that the new module need to be programmed to my car and I just can't plug it in and make it work.
Can someone please tell me if this is true and what other option I have to have this Basic Module sorted other than going to the main dealer.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
