Routing of wire from starter to coil - ‘74 model.


kbmb02

Recommended Posts

I’m working to get the wiring back to original funcationality on a ‘74 2002tii.

 

This car has the resistor wire from fuse block to the coil + (no separate relay, or physical resistor). The schematic shows a red/black wire which supplies ‘full’ battery 12V to the coil during the start sequence, with the wire originating at the starter and ending at the coil +. For those who have late model 2002’s with similar configuration (I don’t believe it needs to be a Tii, but maybe), where does the red/black wire fit in the wiring loom? Is it a separate, single wire? What’s the route to the coil (in the loom, via connector near the bulkhead, etc.)

 

Thanks in advance. -KB

The red/black is in the larger of the two blue harnesses that run across the top of the firewall.

 

Thanks, @John76

There is no blue harness on this car (so much for Pebble Beach...) Did Tii's have a blue harness?

 

I'll clarify: My question is more about how/where the red/black wire routes from the starter and into the harness. Does it route down the side of block in the harness which then runs up the inner LH fender? Does it route from the starter 'rearward' to the firewall? Does it route from the starter over to the corner of the firewall near the fuse box? -KB

I believe, John, that the “blue harness” may have just appeared with the 1975 model, with the advent of the thermal reactor exhaust manifold, which multiplied the emissions controls. At that time, 1975, the windshield washer reservoir moved to a position over the brake booster, and the coil moved to the reservoir’s old spot. I would guess that a ‘74 tii’s wiring harness for starter and coil might be similar to a ‘73 tii’s set-up... Maybe?

 

I can’t answer Ken’s question, but I’m thinking that @OriginalOwner, @GlenKarr, and @JohnD, all original owners of ‘74 tii’s, can probably answer the question!
 

Best regards,

 

Steve

    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
