Anybody got a wiring diagram?

I just ordered and received a factory manual but, lo and behold, there is no factory wiring harness schematic! Why would they omit something as important as that? Do you have to buy it separately? Is it included in the Clymer?

I am looking to wiring in a taillight wig-wam flasher module to the taillights and luggage rack stop light and would rather not go fishing in the harness all willy-nilly. Can anyone point me to an online source for the wiring schematic? Much thanks in advance!

I'd rather have a bottle in front of me, than a frontal lobobomy!

The Clymer one has it... sorry this doesn't help you right now

The supreme irony of life is that hardly anyone gets out of it alive.

Re: Anybody got a wiring diagram?

Pull your rear lamp assembly out by opening the side cases and removing the one strange looking stainless steel bolt at the top rear of each case. Look at the back side of the lamp assembly and it is easy to read the harness at that point. The three center bulbs are 1157 (dual filament) and you should find that the center bulb only has one connection in use which is the running lamp filament. Correlate the unused blade on that bulb holder with the ones in use on the other two sockets and there's your brake lamp wires. I don't recall the color coding other than the ground wires are brown.

Re: Anybody got a wiring diagram?

On the tailight housing - brake wire is Grey. In the harness back from the the housing it is a Grey/Yellow wire. Just don't mess with the Grey/Black wire on the center light or you will get an ABS fault.

And yes BMW sells a CD that has ALL the wiring diagrams for all models back to 93.

Re: Anybody got a wiring diagram?

Thanks all for the info. Your knowledge and my trusty test light had it sorted out lickety-split.
