If anything, it should turn on and some screens should show up. I see that this came from a M3 with the HiFi system, so if your M3 do not have the Enhanced Audio then you should have audio. You can even test the audio without the screen cable by plugging the CIC in and playing a CD.
Check your current CCC screen power connector (12-pin with 6 wires) pin assignments against that CIC screen power connector pin assignments: according to BMWTIS.com somewhow the pins colors and functions are common but the pin assignments are different. So double check before plugging the sucker up... you can burn it.
Nav and Voice Activation will require the FSC codes.
i'm lost all over again.
what is the FSC codes and how do i get it?
also you mention the knob will only work for 4/08 and on? my car is 3/08 and the knob works. so we can add another month to that.
