Just to get further information in order not to put you on wrong track and to give you point where to look. Tell me, when you unplugged connectors from red multifunction unit, did light goes off or stayed on? Also while you were doing this swap did you disconnect car battery or you left it connected?
I am asking these questions in order to get info if my above suspicion is correct. If light stayed on when connectors are disconnected, then above is correct. If light went off, then problem might be elswhere, providing info to mfu that light should be switched on and we might need to investigate further.
Of course, there is always possibility that problem is in connector to multifunction unit and we need to eliminate it first. Connector can be tricky and no false connection when disconnected, but when it is put back on it makes false connection.
Do you have multimeter in order to help you investigate some points?
