1. What kind of choke is installed on the weber?

2. Will it studder then die when cold? This is pretty normal... you may need to adjust your choke. With my electric choke on my weber I need to hold throttle open a little until warm. Nothing out of the ordinary, it's an older car and requires a little more manual input.

3. The ignition system (disregarding the starter) has no relays.

4. If it is an ignition problem, then it won't idle when warm either.

5. Has standard maintenance been done by a reputable mechanic? This includes adjusting timing, idle/mixture adjustment on carb, points replaced and gapped properly, points, condensor, wires, and coil are in good condition, valves adjusted to spec.

6. Do you have the EGR equipment hooked up?

7. Did you check for vacuum leaks?

We need some more information.

EDIT: What wire are you talking about that you "bypass"

Check your Fuse box. Don't recall the number of which one.

That wire is hot all the time with the key on.

If I understand and can translate- the power to the electric choke is not supplying power. The choke appears to be working when jumped from the battery.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
