Electrical Problems: Body Electronic Control Module Location?

Hi guys, on a 1997 328is, I'm having some interior lighting electrical problems and am trying to locate the BECM (Body Electronic Control Module ZKE IV) that, I believe works with fuse#33, and controls the interior lighting (dim out, 2 rear seat lights, and maplight).

Does anyone know where to find the BECM body electronic control module?

Thanks in advance
