Instrument Cluster internal schematics


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Apologies if this is common knowledge but I thought I'd share (I find the wiring diagram view of the cluster non-intuitive). The pin numbers refer to the round connector, numbered per the wiring diagram. That separate tab on the cluster for the handbrake is shown without a number. Please let me know if you see an error.

 

Thanks!

Item labeled "Ignition", pins 1 and 12 is the alternator charge light.  Pin 12 harness side it the blue wire that terminates at the voltage regulator by way of the diagnostic port.

A radiator shop is a good place to take a leak.

 

I have no idea what I'm doing but I know I'm really good at it.

Which tab are you referring to?  

Is it the one at the bottom of the cluster (yellow circle in my picture)? 

 

Is "5x Illumination" (pin #4) another name for the dimmer function for the dash lights?

Thanks Jim, you are correct. By "ignition" I meant "ignition warning".

Suggest "Charging Light" or what the Owners Manual calls it.

Schematic has been updated. I opted to use the term in the wiring diagram, as that should be the appropriate reference for things electrical 🙂

Couple of small points from "Healey 3000"'s nice diagram:  early cars have a separate wire that runs to the tach, as the tach was an option on 02s other than those imported by Hoffman for the US--it was one of his "non optional options"

 

Also, roundies don't have the parking brake warning light or its wiring--only squarelights.

 

And...in John's photo of the cluster's back side, the three brass male terminals that are directly above the terminal circle where the wiring harness plugs in--if the car was equipped with a clock (e.g. an automatic) that's where the clock's wiring harness plugs in.  On tach equipped cars, those terminals are covered by a little rubber plug, which also fits the three tach terminals if the car has a clock.

Nice addendum Mike to the contributions of the posters. 
 

In your second para, you mention the parking brake warning light. It might be a Euro model thing but my Nov ‘72 build RHD has the wiring to the warning light.

It was...US spec cars didn't get that little feature until the squarelights arrived with the 1974 model year.  And we (US) never did get the low fuel warning light that was prevalent on Euro/rest of the world cars...

Even though the low-fuel warning light was featured in the USA brochures and window stickers.

Later USA models changed from the plain red dash light to a red light with "BRAKE" to indicate parking brake, fluid level, and twin-circuit brake pressure differential issues. Later cars did not have the 3-terminal fuel sender, but if you have one and want a low-fuel warning, it's easy to do.

    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
