    I am in the process of installing a new loom in my series 3.All the loom is in place just connections to do. At present I have no dipped headlights but main beam and flash are working also sidelights are ok as are rear lights and brake lights. Also indicators and hazards do not work. There seems to be no power to starter as engine does not turn over. Starter is new, battery is charged, solenoid is new ,all indicator wiring and bulbs are new. I have posted some diagrams to see if anyone can point out any obvoius problems with the wiring. Many thanks.

    I have just redone my loom(Well reconnected it all after the last owner) And i may be pointing out what you allready know. But there is a box between the starter motor and the battery, both with heavy duty +ve leads on em. And a Kickass realay between them. That white and red wire is the trigger for that realay. Whitch in turn connects the starter motor to the battery, Try connecting that straight to a +ve wire, eg brown for constant, and white for acc. and the starter motor SHOULD turn over the engine.

    Hope that helps!
    Cheers,

    You do realize this thread is almost 9 years old from the last post and started 11 years ago?
