Any questions? Don't hesitate to ask!





Our oil diagnostic kits are engineered from scratch for the BMW 2002 and handmade in Germany. Utilizing the original "Fasten Seat Belts" housing for an OEM+ appearance, these sleek kits replace the useless 1970s technology with modern, real-time LED oil temperature and oil pressure indicators. The comprehensive kit allows you to actively monitor your engine's vitals - check the oil temperature so you're properly warming up the car and not causing avoidable wear, while the oil pressure provides an indicator of load, helping prevent a seized engine and/or other catastrophic failure.


Once installed, the kit is invisible to the naked eye. The "brain box" can be mounted in the glovebox or center console, while the wires can all be routed under the dash, along with the factory wires. Best of all, the kits include everything needed to install in your 2002. All you need is a few hand tools and some basic wiring skills.



Out of the box, the kit can be easily wired in 4 different ways:

1. Always on*

2. Always on*, and dimmable

3. Switched

4. Switched, and dimmable


*turns on with the key.


For options 3 and 4 you need to provide your own switch.



Parts included:

  • "Brain box" - fused circuit boards/computer housing
  • Oil temperature sender and crush washer
  • Oil pressure sender and crush washer
  • Custom machined adapter for oil pressure and oil temperature senders (mounts in the factory oil temp spot)
  • Custom machined banjo bolt designed for our adapter block (feeds oil to both senders) and two crush washers
  • All necessary wires, color-coded and labeled, with proper connectors
  • 2 pairs of insulated, crimp-on wire terminals (disconnects)
  • 6 small, black zip ties for general wire tidying
  • Velcro to mount brain box (in glovebox, center console, etc)
  • A walkthrough PDF with detailed photos will be emailed to you upon purchase


Please note, this kit is designed for the US-spec 1968-1976 BMW 2002/1600. European-spec cars and some other models do not have the "Fasten Seat Belts" indicator housing. Please check your application to ensure correct fitment.

OK.  That’s really cool.  The only way it could be cooler would be if it switched over to a “Fasten Seat Belts” mode whenever a concours judge was in close proximity....☺️

How dare you, sir!!! Some '70's German Engineer somewhere, is highly insulted!!!! :lol:


Thanks guys!


If anyone is truly concerned about originality, your stock "Fasten Seat Belts" housing can be swapped back on in about 20 seconds - just a couple of screws and it's concours-ready!
