c) Check CDC unit for the same as above
d) Check HUD for E6x for the same as above
e) Check any other fibre optic connected device like TV,DVD changer etc for the same as above
2) Open most bus connection
If MOST port is left opened, e.g. the port for OPS (in the glovebox) somehow become loose and its connector came off, very rare but possible.
3) Broken/twisted most bus fibre optic wire
Super rare but possible, if problem appeared after recent change/retrofit then look for twisted/damaged fibre optic wire
Problem will be among these possible situation. Generally I have seen if power is disturbed to a most unit then it simply breaks the most ring and you get this problem. To isolate it you need to buy most bypass part from dealer and you can individually bypass each component to see if problem is due to that unit. Isolate and identify is the key to work on ring topology network.
I disconnected the panel under steering colum during routing of some cables , I disconnected everything that was connected to the panel , panel is not installed yet , but I put power back on , and when key is in , I get the SOS symbol , no need to worry once I hook everything back together again?

And I have one more issue you might could help me with ...
