74 auto--seatbelt interlock relay

I need a sure fire bypass.My system interacts with my ignition and results in zero cranking. The strter can be jumped remotely--no problem.The interior is out and i've jumped everything to no avail. I pressed on and found a weird round relay up and under by my ignition switch-----i tried to splice the 2 biggest wires and chuck the relay but that didn't do it. I had the shifter out so i bypassed the safety swich wires located opposite the reverse lights on the tranny front

Guess what?? NOTHING YET!---There is no diagram available on earth.To complicate things the car has not atrted in 9 years but did crank prior to my interior removal (rust check) I should be able to solve this but it may take a response from someone who has lived thru this and has an answer.I want to get it inside before i rally lose interest-----tia --Brent

If I rember right it was a square relay about the size of a deck of cards with about 6 to 8 wires running to it on the firewall just to the right of the steering column and I jumped the 2 largest wires togeather..

Thanks Marty---but i think the rectangular box is by your left foot----i can establish power (#30) and starter (#50) and i jumped these---nothing!--I then found another relay for ingnition lockout---it was round if i recall and had 2 primary wires--one black which was power always from ignition and a larger striped wire that i really could not trace when it came off the relay---there were also 2 incidental wires from the relay-----I connected the 2 large ( i blieve the relay marked them as 50 & 80?? but that's from memory) and tossed the relay---nothing!!! what the hell has happened since i pulled the interior out?? I'm going to be pulling a Caddyshack and cut every wire to chase down these gremlins--------Brent

Well Brent it sounds like you bypassed the interlock and neutral saftey switch/relay it should start. Looks like you'll need to get a meter or test light and trace the power from the ignition switch thru every thing to the starter something must be open in there, Sorry....Marty...

up inside the steering column housing and has two wires, that's just the "key in the ignition" squealer. I would suspect that the neutral switch and the seat belt interlock relay are two different items, since only the USA cars had the seat belt interlock, but all cars had the neutral saftety switch. Most of the USA-only stuff was kinda grafted on to the cars by the factory--separate wiring harnesses etc.

    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
