7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

Mein Auto: 2002 745i
Just purchased 2002 745i, work in progress, a couple random questions....?

Hey everyone, as you can see I'm a new owner of a 02 745i. I bought this car aware of the issues and ready for a non stop maintenence battle. This car has a lot of cosmetic work to do though, but mechanically she's sound and runs great at the moment. First questions is

question 1- when I got car home I was going through and and under the drivers floor mat is a black cable with what looks almost like an erhernet cable tip on the end, it runs down along the door panel towards the back, I haven't followed it all the way, thought I'd ask if anyone know what this goes to first?

Question 2- the drivers seat switch for positioning is broken, it goes every direction but reclining back and forth, I pushed memory 1 on setting and it reclined all the way so now the seats stuck. Any advice and does anyone know if these switches are known to go bad? How hard are they to replace? And is it possible to just plug the passenger switch to the drivers just to readjust t it?

Also the esm is stuck on highway so it's a little stiff, I know this has been covered and tried to search but couldn't find a link to new modules or a post that covered how to clean the connections and there location?
You'll be hearing a lot from me for the next couple month's, so hopefully I'll get to know you all and I greatly appreciate any and all help.
