wiring harness

  1. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello I'm looking to swap the complete drivetrain from my 06 530i into my project truck. This is the first time I'm working with anything BMW, yet alone modern automotive electronic. So I'm wondering what is the absolute minimum wiring harness I need for the engine to run and the transmission to...

    hi everyone. first time poster here looking at a great diagram i found online, the connector comes out of roughly the circled area however this diagram doesn't account for the cable in question I was removing the intake manifold and upon re installation I came across this plug that I can't find...

    I am installing an aftermarket backup camera. The camera and monitor have trigger wires as well as the positive and negative. In order to get this working properly, i would need to attach the trigger wire with the revers lights. Does anyone know what colour is the reverse light wire? Also...

    I don't know what I can do more to solve this :( last year I had a severe overheating problem with my tranny and it was fixed by replacing clogged heat exchanger and voltage regulator (trans tstat). now I'm having overheating issue once again, not as severe though, it only happens if I do some...

    So my E66 has been to the dealer and 2 shops trying to locate the fault(s) causing limp mode and the typical christmas tree of lights-DSC, ABS. etc. The shop it is at now has found what they believe is the issue-the 2 harnesses that plug into the vvt module have melted wires ! Does anybody know...

    Hey, first post, be gentle ;) .. i am a noob, teaching myself how to teardown my M54 to replace the busted coolant pipe (the shorter of the two plastic beasts). Taking my time, lots of pics and videos etc. So far so good. Intake Manifold is back on, oil & vacuum lines rebuilt etc. My hose from...
  8. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    Hi, I am in the process of replacing the factory 10 speaker (non-dsp) head unit in my '05 Z4. I purchased the following: Metra 99-9303 Single DIN Installation Kit for 2003-2008 BMW Z4 Series Metra Axxess ASWC-1 Universal Steering Wheel Control Interface Metra 40-EU10 Antenna to Radio Adapter...
  9. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I have a 323is. I am struggling trying to find out how to plug up the wiring harness. I bought an engine with nonthing on it. So I have to put the alternator, brackets, intake manifold, throttle body, all of that on the engine. Now, I had labeled all of the wires to where they needed to go. It's...

    Trunk light is out. Bulb is good, light socket good, connector good, fuse good . Suspect wire bundle exiting right side truck lid hinge. Common for BMW across many models even after all these years. Shame , shame . Anyone else have same issue . What was your fix ? Thanks

    Recently purchased car used, working thru some engine fault codes. Car presently has a CEL (check engine light) with codes p1384, p0505, p0170, p0173. This may or not be related but i noticed visually checking the top of the engine I have a 2 conductor connector on the top engine passenger...
  12. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    Hi - I am looking to know what type of plugs (or pin connectors/male pin connector housings or whatever they are called) insert into the front driver's side door - window switch. One of the connectors/plugs broke on mine and rather than buy the whole wiring harness, I am hoping to simply get...
  13. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Long story short I'm swapping an M62 Non-Vanos into my 1976 2002. Don't give me your opinion on the swap itself. I'm not very good with the whole electrical aspect of BMW's so I'm just wondering if I have to find a non-vanos specific wiring harness or if any M62 harness will work? Also is there...
  14. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi, First time I post a question on the forum, I looked and search, but wasn't able to find the answer, I did find few pointers on what the issue is, but I need a very good way to explain this to my mechanic since I keep getting that the transmission is fine and if there aren't any ODBII codes...
  15. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I have a 1997 528i with a production date of 11/96. The transmission went out and I bought a used transmission from a third party. After I got everything hooked up I find that one of the plugs does not match. I opened up both transmissions and pulled the plugs out and brought them to my...

    Hello all - My '03 E39 was pre-wired for phone, and came with the Motorola phone module and the Voice Command module factory installed. It also came with the NAV and DSP. I installed a Dice MediaBridge unit, which connects to the car's 3- and 6-pin connectors in the trunk, for Bluetooth phone...

    Hi My first post in desperation. My E39 2002 530i is low kms and drives like a dream. It was dealer fitted with a reversing camera under the boot lip. The wiring baked under the boot lid for 10 years and the insulation hardened and cracked allowed condensation to fuse the wiring loom. Luckily...
  18. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Bought a used 750i from an internet dealer... Carfax was totally clean. Car was from LA, 31K miles when purchased. Have now found C pillar and some of pass rear fender (pass side of trunk) has been repainted. I don't know enough to recognize how much work may have been done to the rear pass...
  19. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Does anyone know where to but the wiring harness for a good price? The hitch we bought is aftermarket but it didn’t come with a wiring harness.
