It does sound related. I did a little research and found some info of interest. It seems they are extending the warranty on the module to 10 years or 156K miles. You fall within the mileage. However, I don't know when the vehicle was put into service. See Pic 1 below.
Regardless, you will be close to the year limitation. You should be able to get assistance because of it.
If they say no, then to confirm it is the module, you will need to scan the can-bus. CAN stands for controller area network. Basically, all the computers/modules are tied together via a few wires. This type of scan will retrieve codes regardless of the module storing them and confirm if the footwell module has failed.
Here is a link showing how it is done:
Let me know if this helps or if you have other questions.
