Mein Auto: 2000 740i, 1999 E36 328is
740i Shifter

I have a 2000 740i and I'm digging into a steptronic issue. Since I bought the car (recently) I have only been able to use Drive on the shifter. When I kick the shifter to the left, nothing happens... No red M light and nothing on the dash (just D). When I look under the wood shift plate, I see one end of the shift display plate has two wires coming out of it and are not connected to anything. Is this the problem.? Is there a fuse involved or is the little black switch I see at the base of the shifter a possible problem? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
