Almost forgot to mention, iDrive shows no connectivity to my hard drive in the centre console either! It has always worked before, it is live as the drive lights up but doesn't register as connected. It's a 1.8" drive with very low power draw, I even tried a flash drive!
I had removed the centre console to install a CIC controller, the rear-view mirror to run wiring for my radar detector, and the footwell panel to run wires through the firewall. Currently, everything is reconnected other than the LED strip under the footwell; any ideas?
As always, any insight you can provide is much appreciated; thanks in advance
