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: bmw 2006 750LI
Exclamation no power

Just run into a problem with my 750li I took my center console out so that I could replace the the two doors that was badly stained. Anyway there were several harnesses inside that I disconnected including the idrive and the l/r seat controller. 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.

thanks,
CArl

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).
