BMW 1600 6v to 12v


Recommended Posts

My wiring is all fouled up. I worked my way through the car seeing what was 12v and what was 6v. Here is what I have that is a 12.....




-Fuel Pump


-Horn(it's broken anyway didn't fire when I used jump wires)

Here is what is not...

Interior Switches

Voltage Regualtor

Should I be following the wiring diagram for a 12v now???

The alternator is wired directly to the positive terminal

The factory ground wires underneath the battery tray where not hooked up at all.

PO also ran a wire from the negative terminal to the starter????

Any input would be appreciated!!!!

If you decide to go 12v i can help with the wiring harnesses complete. I have carefully pulled a few --every inch with most grommets and relays that you might need. These aren't brittle or fatigued sets or i wouldn't have bothered--you get the advantage of cut to length and oem connectors. Brent---scoyote@shaw.ca
