Onb German cars, brown wires are grounds. You are right, you need a wiring schematic to see where that wire is supposed to go.

Suscribe to alldata .com, for about 12 bucks or so you can get your car enroled for the year and it will include wiring diagrams.

What does not work in the car? This might give you a clue to what that ground wire is about. Note that if a componenet is looking for a ground, you will have battery voltage in that wire.

Loook nharder for where that spade connector goes also

good luck

Good Luck

Hi someone please help!! I disconnected my loom conectors from my bmw m43 engine to change the head gasket, now trying to put loom back to engine and have one conector with a single brown wire with nowhere...

On a Car the brown wire is always the earth wire, I'm not familiar with your particular car, but check foe a earth spade clip on the engine or chassis sorry I can't help more than this, it's always best if your stripping something down no matter what it is just take several pictures on your phone or camera as a back up guide but in your case it's to late.

I hope I've been of some help Good Luck

Bmw 525 i 1990 left rear tail light comes on only sometime what is the problem.

Check the ground wire first, it's the brown wire and several of them join on a tab that is bolted somewhere in the trunk. Check under the bolt for corrosion. Clean and re-attach.

The radio and signal switch on my 2002 bmw 525 i comes on at will, and sometimes the radio wont turn off, and the volume goes up and down. what should i do

If you have the BMW tool to pull radio, check wiring plug in rear of radio. Also check grounds (brown wires usually in bundles) If you don't have tool BMW dealer is the only other option. If it's the actual radio, I'll tell you now BMW will send it in for repair which is a one week turnaround. (I used to work for BMW of NA)

Fuel filter and oil filter location on Bmw 320 td copact

If you removed the camshaft cover, you should probably replace the gasket or at a minimum insure that all bolts are torqued to OEM specification.

Look here for instructions and pictures for the oil change.

The fuel filter is located on the bottom of the car, not sure which side, under a shield. Look here for pics and instructions.

Hope this helps!
