Question I-bus or K-bus to talk to the MID

I-bus K-bus, what is the difference? I have been looking at diagrams on spagetticoder.org. According to the diagrams for the MID, the MID should be talking to the instrument cluster over the K-bus, since I just have the basic cluster. It would use the I-bus, if I had the high cluster (with the text display). My mechanic said that he couldn't get the i-bus to connect to the MID (not sure what he was using to do this). Should he have been trying to get the connection over the K-bus?
