Car doesn't start! Help

I've been experiencing a problem with starting my 95 525i when it's cold - turn the key and nothing. Along with this, the central locking doesn't work as well as the windows and sunroof not working. After the car is warm, it's fine.

My non-BMW mechanic has checked everything and has come to the conclusion the problem is part of the 94V-219 recall campaign involving the replacement of the general module. I guess it's a anti-theft thing where the car can't be started. The car starts fine in his shop which has led him to the conclusion it's the module.

Has anyone experienced this or know anything about the recall? Thanks in advance!
