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.

help needed for wiring info [E65 730D 2003]

Hi guy

I leave in France (so forgive my writing) , I broke a plug (E65 730D 2003 with idrive) . The plug is connected to the central control module in the armrest under the idrive button (X10387 on attached thumbnails)

Unfortunately, the wires mess up so I can't repin the plug .
I have four wires: Red/Black Brown/Black Green Green/Orange and I need to know the order.
You can see the plug in thumbnails (don't pay attention to the wires, this is for the sunroof).
there are 6 connectors numbered from 1 to 6. Can someone tells me wich wire is going in position 1/2/3/4 as 5 and 6 are empty

thanks a lot

cyril

You might want to try WDS on BMW-PLANET.COM. You will have to use internet explorer and download version 8.71 of Java and add http://www.bmw-planet.com to the except list in the security tap section in the Java control box to get it to work. All of this info is on the site where you pick the language. But the wiring schematic for your car should be there.

*Dany: I will send you a message
*745D: I already tried but it is not so simple for me. I can locate the connector (X217) but I can't find any info about how the wires are connected

Don't look for the plug, look for the I-Drive controller and it will show you what wires are going to it. Just make sure you pick the schematic for your car.

745D, I've tried to figure out my way in the WDS but I can't find a info about the wiring. I can find the controller, the plug, the code of the incoming wire to the controller but no description of the wire itself.
I keep looking. I have found a picture with the wire on this forum but the guy is hiding 2 of the 4 wires with his finger

If you haven't found it by the time I get off work I'll take a look for you.
