Random wire near starter?


2002VT

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

 

i was moving around and bleeding the clutch this weekend - then ready to drive it when it would not start. Just clicked. Grrr. I'll return my new battery to see if I killed it when I accidentally tried to start the car while it was in first gear (prior to the clutch being fixed) and it crept forward two or three rotations. 

 

I guess maybe I killed the starter - maybe. But that would be weird. 

 

Anyway, here is the random wire coming from the same lead that goes to the starter...did I knock a wire free?

looks like the coolant temp sender wire.

 

edit.. dug up a photo from my disassembly album.

 

You can see it plugged in here at the bottom/center of the photo on top of the coolant divider.

Thank you so much for the help. I cannot quite see it - but I am on my phone. I'll check it from my PC tonight. 

 

I will ill swap out my cables tonight, and I got my battery tested too. Last issue to check will be a starter.

That wire doesn't look long enough to reach the temp sender. What colour is it? I can check against a wiring diagram (O am colour-blind so it is best you check it :D)

ya, I didn't consider the length.

 

In the photos, the only colour I can make out is brown.

    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
