Long story short I finally got it back together thought I had reconnected everything correctly but when I tried to start the car the instrument cluster wouldnt come on. The center screen that control stereo and other functions would come on my sun roof is stuck open no power. The funny thing though is the car will start headlights work fine and of course the idrive and seat control don't work. I'm thinking its something inside I hooked up wrong or forgot to hook up. I didnt know the center console controlled all this stuff. Does anyone have any input what it could be I greatly appreciate any input.

Inside the center console, pull the front wall into the console. May take some wiggling. There should be one flat harness that plugs into the bottom of the Idrive with a short cord. When I got done I notice the seats would not move, so this was my problem (2002 745).
