Wiring diagrams for head lights for 91 E30



I need the wiring diagrams for the US and Euro 91 318is headlights. I have the dark headlights from Europ on my can and the high beams don't seem to work. If you can help, it will be appreciated.

Thanks,

Rafal

I checked and in the factory manual, there is no wiring diagram specific to the headlights, only generalized ones for the body wiring which indicates where the wires go.

Have you tested for +12VDC when H/B's are switched on? List off what you have tested so far.

LoL... I checked today and it turns out that the high beams are not even hooked up. I definitively need the diagrams to hook it up.

Please send it when you get a chance.

Thanks.

I will be amazed if you find the Canadian-spec E30 wiring diagram.

The wireing is completely messed up and all the lights turn on or off just with one switch. I need to first bring it back to stock and then rewire it properly.

Why is that a big deal? I have the entire factory manual in PDF, and it's accurate (so far).

The Canadian headlamp wiring is completely different from that of anywhere else in the world, and is screwed up to put it nicely. Not many people ever had one in the first place let alone remember where it is, I've tried.
