Damn wiring diagrams

visually inspect the wire all the way up to the dash for any evidence of worn plastic sleeve. i've found a couple worn wires from rubbing before. all it takes is 30+years of contact with metal and slight pressure and the plastic coating can develop a small wear spot which will expose the wire.

that wire harness is channeled through some tight orifices from the trunk to back seat area and a small opening at the base of the rear seat, driver's side. it's also vulnerable along the rocker panel.

there's a short somewhere, gonna take some eyeballs and maybe a voltmeter to find it.

their respective taillight wiring--the left on on fuse 7 and the right one on fuse 8 on squarelights; fuses 1 & 2 respectively on 12 fuse roundies.

However, I'd check to see if they're wired into the license plate light circuit, as at least some of those cars have the Euro on-street parking light setup--where you can select a left or right turn with the turn signal lever when the ign is off, and the corresponding side parking and tail lights will illuminate, but not the side markers.

And I believe the side marker wiring connects into the main harness wires in the trunk itself, but you might want to check that...

    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
