WTB: p/n 63-12-0144-133 Retrofit Cable

Hi: Trying to wire the auxiliary (rally) driving lights on my 2004 R53, using the OE switch. I need the 'retrofit cable' p/n 6312-0144-133. Any body?

Do you have the switch and control box? I think the only slightly hard part of making this yourself will be the connector for the control box, and you could do that with the right Faston connectors and a bit of patience.

If it would help, I'd be willing to reverse-engineer mine & provide a circuit diagram; it's not particularly complex.

If you don't have the control box, you'll need a 15A bistable relay or some other tinkering. I actually built something very similar a while back to do high beam control on a Porsche 914 ( https://github.com/John-Titor/HighBeamRelay ) it was designed to retrofit into a specific 5-pin flasher enclosure (Hella 66507) so it would be socket-mountable, but you could easily hardwire it...



PCB layout for 'smart' high beam / headlight relay.

DrZ: Thanks; no, I do not have the control box. I have a switch that presumably connects to the box. I clicked your embedded link; no longer works.

You can use our site as a guide for the wires:

And these digrams, I could not find one directly for the rally aka additional fog lights

Link got mangled by the editor; fixed now.

The switch is a momentary pushbutton and a couple of LEDs (one for illumination, one to tell you it's on). The control box is what makes it all go.

Here's the RealOEM page with all of the parts for the retrofit: https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/sho...diagId=03_2143 - looks like the control box is still available new: https://www.ecstuning.com/Search/Sit...h/63120144135/ but the wiring harness is NLA. The connector would take some digging up...

It's a shame this harness isn't available anymore. I finally found a used one that should arrive on Friday. It's cut so not sure how bad it will be. Any better drawings/info on lengths of leads?

The green/yellow wire that snakes across under the dash needs to be long enough to snake across under the dash to the BC in the right footwell; how long it needs to be will vary depending on how neatly you want to do it. On mine whoever did it wasn't very interested in a neat job, so it's on the short side. Depending on where yours was cut, you may also need more length to get to the lights, but that's pretty easy to measure on the car and wire is cheap, so make it a bit too long and then trim it to suit when you install...

There's a wiring diagram in the installation instructions: http://www.motoringfile.com/howto/Dr...Lights_902.pdf
