I pulled my center console out yesterday to vacuum the AC ducts. I put it back together and now I have no seat controls and the idrive wheel wont function. The only connectors I pulled were the rear fans and the power outlets... which still work and so does the led light at the front of the console.... any ideas?

theres a wire that connect right under the idrive control knob of the center console. When disconnected u get no power to seat control or idrive knob

Is it a small 4-pin black connector? I can't find where the jack is for it

same thing happened to me lol. the jack is located right under the idrive unit on center console. its a pain to clip on bc the wire is really short. basically the center console has to be almost closed for it to reach.

You can just see the IDrive connector in the centre offset left in the photo below :

Have the same issue Idrive does not power up and all seat controls not working unless connected to a scan computer then you can move seats. Is there a general relay or module that send power to all? even none of the seat switches light up both sides. SAny ideas I,m interested as to what is stuck causing no power 5v on green wire going to I drive centre console control under knob. however I was told the previous battery went dead does this have anything to do with it?
