replaced obc :( no good

So i replaced my stock obc (18 buttons) with another because it wasnt working....only the time panel would work and thats it. The large display to the left wshows nothing, so i figured replace the obc. No good, i thought maybe the lights...so i took a good working light and put it into one of the slots for the left panel...nothing....seems like no power is being sent to the left panel....how do i diagnose and what to do??

ok so figured the white connector was power.....when i remove black connector, i still have a functional clock...well a display there at least..clock just sits at --:-- PM

when i pull white connector it goes away. Where does the wiring go, i mean where do the wires end and go through where, im thinking a bad connector somewhere.

so where does the wiring go do you know? I found the bentley manual, but i cannot find the wiring for the obc......would it be a fuse? would be such a waste to go to dealer for this.
