TOPIC: More BMW GS Wiring Questions

More BMW GS Wiring Questions 2 years, 7 months ago #135542

Whilst undertaking some farkling I've come across a number of empty connectors and was wondering if anyone had some information on what they were for? I've consulted my BMW wiring diags but they don't show.

Have a look at the attached pictures. I think one might be for the add-on power socket but not sure what the other two are for...

Any help appreciated.

This one is down by the left side of the air box

This one is on the top of the ZFE module

And this one is up by the steering head.

there is a two pin connector just near to the vin no/headstock that you can buy a connector/flying lead to plug into,about a tenner from the dealer,but it is controled by the can system and i think its only rated at 5amp,it would be okay for a control feed for a relay but you will still need a fused supply for accesories,

Your best source of info would be the 1200GS forum on UKGSer: www.ukgser.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=92

The one by the headstock is for the BMW Garmin Sat-Nav.
You can buy the plug with two bare wires to go in here and use it for powering your own sat nav.
That's what I did, quite useful. It comes on and off with the ignition.
As for the other plugs, you could ask on UKGSER, I'll take a look in the Haynes manual when I get five min's

Like Tim say’s the can-bus system will throw a wobbly if too greater a resistance is put forward. I have run aux spots and sockets on my 06’ GSA tapping into loom only for control voltage (ie- to control one relay) with no problems or warnings from the onboard etc..

Thanks all, I think I have what I need. I was looking for a +12v supply for lighting relays that went on and off with the ignition.

Next stop is pulling apart the ZFE to fit the Autoswitch 7

I've just ordered the Autoswitch too, so i'd be really interested in how you get on.

Thanks GB, I've already read your thread...and i don't have a problem with fitting the switch. Really i was just wondering where you took the power for the lights from???
Not the power for the relay, but the power to run through the relay to the lights...
I don't really want to wire back to the battery....
