Wiring Help From M42 Swap People

Recommended Posts

Hi guys think ive nearly wired in my m44 which appears to be very similar if not identical to how the m42 is done. Ive been using the m42 guide to wire it all up and it says to connect the dme ground wire to the brake light connection on the reservoir. My 1502 has no wiring on the brake reservoir does it mean the brake light switch operated by the brake pedal? Also can i connect the big green 12v hot wire to the red alternator wire or does it need to be connected to battery 12v? Will add some pictures of the mess tomorrow to see if anyone can spot any issues.

Regards

Dave

thanks mlytle thats great! another idiot question but does the casing of the dme need to be grounded like an audio amp?

 

 

uuurgh cant get any kind of starting indication from the engine on turning the key. the engine is getting power but no starter noise. i assumed i would still get that even if the ews wasnt allowing the engine to actually fire

    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
