Fog Light Circuit


Recommended Posts

Fog lights were a "dealer installed" accessory. The factory did not include wiring in the original harness for the lights. The BMW kit came with the dash switch, wiring harness, and lights. Your eyes are not that bad, it's just not there.

I think there may be some wiring on the later cars. There are pigtails on the wiring loom near each headlamp, and near the firewall on my 76. I believe these have something to do with pre-wired front foglamps?

Well, the late cars have one piece of the puzzle. If I recall -- I admit this is fuzzy and I'm 900 miles from my 2002 -- at least one of those pigtails is only powered when low beams are on (the other pigtail may be powered only when high beams are on), so a good power source is available with automatic dimming of foglamps when high beams are selected. But you've still got to install a relay, the dash switch, and the rest of the wiring.

There are LOTS of instructions on this forum; you just need to do a search.

(Late cars also have a conveniently located and labeled location for the dash switch, to the left of the instrument cluster, and an open bay on the relay rack just above the battery -- if you salvage a relay socket from another 2002, your relay will slide right onto the rack, as intended by BMW.)

    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
