2011 Explorer APIM swap

Hello there!

My APIM failed and I bought a new one from a rep that stated provided the VIN and it would be plug and play. I am learning that was not the case. I was curious if there was a way to save the old APIM information via forscan and upload it to the new one. Ever since installing the new one the only way I can change anything with the climate control is via the steering wheel. So temp and fan, which I can do on the buttons as well, but when I go into the climate menu everything is grayed out and my heated/cooled seats have buttons now on the front screen but will not turn on. Any input would be appreciated! I tried the as built portion and that didn't do much so I figured I would try to save a profile with the non-working APIM and upload it to the working one. Thanks!!
