    MY of the car would help. Any photo from the plug? Can you read the connector number? Do you mean more than one red and/or black wire on that connector, all red or black, no stripe with some other colour?

    I think I found only one all red wire, on the connector for the display unit.

    Shmeefly you asked this in another thread where I told you it went to the rear fusebox and to which fuse ? If you search for posts by me you should find it pretty quickly

    Cheers

    Also, have you put a volt-meter on the power lead to the stereo ? You could just have lost a fuse somewhere (but I think I have told you to check them all)
    BTW, I think the power lead is Red/Blue.

    Have you actually checked for power on the power leads at the COMAND and the other stuff that doesn't light up ?

    Why don't you book it in with us for a few hours and we'll just work though with circuit diagrams and Star Diagnosis. (or Olly or one of the other specialists on the forum) ? I know this will cost you a few ££ but without the tools you are relying on luck to find the issue - and there's a lot of stuff in a W221 ...
