    Right guys, came across this quite a while ago, and it has been added to the
    list of bits to do, which seems to be getting ever longer and longer.

    The question being, from the diagram below, which is actually an install done in an E46 coupe although I assume the ignition system is the same in all BMW's, the fuse link between "Pin 87" and "Pin 86" carries a 2a Blade fuse, would this inturn mean that the cable coming from "Pin 85" to "Pin 1" of the Start Button only carries a 2a current?

    Basic electronic knowledge dumfounds me tonight, as I am also currently in the process of overloading my brain calculating a load list for a gig in March, oh such joys.

    All info is obviously greatly appreciated, I should learn to "del..e..gate" some jobs once in a while! haha hardly likely!

    Cheers,
    Steve
