Exclamation Help!!!!

So, I decided a few weeks ago that I would retrofit a nav in my x3. Finally got around to doing it today (i should say tonight) AND i've come across a problem.

Everything is plugged as it should, but the monitor and MKIV unit aren't turning on.

I'd like to think that my wiring is correct, but something tells me I skipped a step.

I connected the black/white wire to the speedometer (no problem) and i connected the green/blue wire to the fuse box in the glove box. I couldn't find an empty spot for the X428 plug, so I ended up using an insulation-displacement connector. (i wonder if this has anything to do with my monitor/mkiv not working)

I connected A3 to the monitor and A1/A2 to their appropriate ends.

A6 & A7 went into the black CID plug (along with the other wires that were already present)

A10 and A9 are connected to the MKiv.

Am i missing something????

Someone please help!!! I don't want to have to undo everything just to leave home.
