How can I wire up 2 front fogs with only one lead?
One of my front fog light cables has been ripped out so only one of the fogs are connected up and working.
Is there any way I can somehow split the cable and wire up the other one?
Also another wire seems to have been ripped out from under my car (don't ask!) as there is nothing connected to my radiator. There is a little 2 pin socket on the bottom corner with nothing attached, although the temp gauge on my dash seems to be working fine.
There is lead in my engine bay with a black connector on the end and green / yellow cabling which isn't connected to anything, which i thought would be the radiator one, but it's about a 12 inches too short to reach the plug. It doesn't seem to be the other fog light one tho as when connected up, its the wrong type of connector and the fog light doesn't come on.
Try what these guys suggested, but if you blow a fuse, then you may need a relay. BMW's are wired using seperate harnesses for left and right side of the vehicle, but I don't know if that applies to the fog lamps as well. If it does, you may end up overloading the circuit on the good side by splicing into it. If that's the case, holler back and I or someone else here will instruct on how to wire up the relay.
To find the (+) wire, you'll need a circuit tester between each wire and the car's metal chassis. Whichever lights up or shows current is your baby.
Don't know about the other wire by your radiator, sorry.
yeah it is just a random wire left there by bmw, mine has the same thing, it has a connector on the end, with two wires right, sits on the left side when u look into the engine bay, From what I concluded(by looking at the bently wiring diagrams) it was wire for the m52 engine, or for some light, as the connector is the same as the fog lights. O well the bmw technicans at my work say that it is supposed to be there so u are fine, aslong as u arnt getting any fault codes
