Matt,

Although I am providing you with no help ... your need (as mine was last night) has spawned an idea. I know now is not the time for you to discuss this but once you find your diagram and make your repair please save the info... we may need it.

I too was looking for a wiring diagram last evening for a Dension IceLink install. I looked high and low across this forum and many others for the cd changer pinouts / diagram. No luck. Figured it out though...whole different story.

Anyway, I know billb was inquiring in an earlier post about idea's for the forum. It sure would be nice to have a "sticky" or something at the beginning of the 5er threads to "house" wiring diagrams, common issues, etc. What do you think?

billb if you read this and want to copy the idea to your original "idea" post ... please do. Maybe the powers that be will implement some of our idea's.

Matt -- Wish I could help you out bud. I will do some searching later tonight when I complete my install.

Jim

I am not so clear when we say REAR fog lights, are we referring to a stand alone REAR red light (driver-activated knob) like the ones required in Germany? I have seen those on some Audis. But on BMW? Never seen one.

Ok, so I have now finished the wiring...all is hooked up and amazingly it's working like a dream.

Bill - Yes, this is the driver controlled rear fog...now i get the 4 fog light knob positions, and get the rear-fog light indicator on the cluster...

WindowPro - thanks for the link, those diagrams will help in the future!

Well worth it, a total of about $5 for wire...and about 3hours of work and 2 hours of swearing.

Fog lights over here are a dangerous pain in the arse! They blind anyone that is within 100 yards of you. People just use them all wrong, if there is nothing behind you and it is foggy (heavy fog) put them on by all means, if you can see the lights of the car behind you turn them off cos he can sure as helll see you without them on, so why dazzle him - NEVER PUT THEM ON IF IT IS RAINING - JUST SPREADS ACCROSS THE WINDSCREEN OF THE CAR BEHIND RENDERING HIM BLIND. Bastard things should be made illegal if you ask me.

I agree with you 122% on the FRONT fog lights but my reply above referred to the REAR fog lights. In Germany they look like brake lights (red in color) driver activated with a knob.

and Beelz if you think you have it bad in the UK with bad adjusted FRONT fog light, take a ride to Turkey and you'll see them mounted on the roof of trucks in 4s/6s and if you ever dare to flash your high beam at night, you will become the STAR of the night-all lighted up !! During a drive from Germany to Turkey I seen them mounted on Bimmers over and under the bumpers all Hellas.

No Bill I'm talking REAR FOG LIGHTS here - they are dangerous as shit if not used properly - there are even TV adverts telling people not to use them if it ain't foggy and you ain't got no one behind you, particularly if it's raining. A simple test - you're rolling along the road at 60mph and you can see the tail lights of the cars 100 meters away in front , WHAT THE MAKES YOU THINK THE CAR 10 METERS BEHIND YOU CAN'T SEE YOU WITHOUT YOUR FOG LIGHTS ON?????????????????????? JESUS THIS PISSES ME OFF - I CAN SEE PEOPLE A MILE IN FRONT BUT I HAVE TO BE DAZZLED BY THE HIGH DENSITY FOG LIGHTS OF THE CAR 20 YRDS IN FRONT COS HE THINKS IT'S A BIT FOGGY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11
